Queen to Release 'New' Live Album 'Live at the Rainbow '74'
A previously unreleased live album by Queen is finally set to be released, NME reports.

"Live at the Rainbow '74" will come out on September 8 in a variety of formats including a DVD featuring live footage. The show was recorded at London's Rainbow venue on March 31, 1974, over 40 years ago. The album was set to be released after the show, but the band put out their breakthrough studio album "Sheer Heart Attack" instead. "Live at the Rainbow '74" has sat in the band's archives ever since. The album sees the band performing "Killer Queen," "Seven Seas of Rhye" and more.

Meanwhile, Queen guitarist Brian May confirmed the band will release an album before the end of 2014 which will feature unreleased vocals by Freddie Mercury. May said the album is likely to be titled "Queen Forever," adding that Mercury's vocals date back to the 1980s. He explained that he and drummer Roger Taylor recently recorded instrumental tracks for the songs, based on the original "scraps" of unreleased music.

Since Mercury's death in 1991, Queen have released one album of new recordings, 1995's "Made in Heaven." Queen tour North America in June with Adam Lambert, who has been Mercury's replacement since 2012.
