Island Records have announced the release of a special 25th anniversary edition of Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballé’s classic ‘Barcelona’ album out 3rd September 2012.

25 years after the original release of the lead single, Queen singer Freddie Mercury’s most self-defining and personal work, his ‘Barcelona’ album recorded in collaboration with Spanish operatic soprano Montserrat Caballé, is to have a special re-release in an entirely newly orchestrated re-working.

The special anniversary version of the album ‘Barcelona – The Special Edition’ is released September 3rd, coming around what would have been the singer’s 66th birthday.

‘Barcelona- The Special Edition’ album release is accompanied by a brand new TV/DVD documentary ‘The Great Pretender’ focusing on Freddie’s solo career and life outside Queen produced and directed by Rhys Thomas. The documentary features never-before-seen footage of Freddie, including hilarious and emotional interviews re-discovered in the Queen archives for the first time recently. ‘The Great Pretender’ is released on DVD and Blu-ray on September 24th.
