Queen have announced details of a deluxe edition of their 1977 album, News Of The World.

It’s due for release on November 17.

The new package includes the original album, plus two further CDs of recently unearthed out-takes and rarities from the archives. One is an ‘alternative’ version of the whole album, Raw Sessions.

Among the highlights of Raw Sessions is a different version of “All Dead, All Dead“. The original version featured Brian May on lead vocals, but for the first time the version featuring Freddie Mercury on vocals will be unveiled.

The set also includes a pure analogue re-cut of the original vinyl LP, direct from the unmastered analogue master mix tapes, a 60-page book and new one-hour DVD documentary, Queen: The American Dream, created from backstage material filmed during Queen’s 1977 USA News of the World tour.
