The last five albums from rock giants Queen, will be reissued on September 5, the date that would have been late singer Freddie Mercury‘s 65th birthday.

Island Records will be re-releasing 1984’s ‘The Works’, 1986’s ‘A Kind Of Magic’, 1989’s ‘The Miracle’ and 1991’s ‘Innuendo’ as well as the band’s final album, ‘Made In Heaven’. The latter album was released in 1995 following Mercury‘s death in 1991.

The releases come as part of the continuing celebrations of Queen‘s 40th anniversary, and the reissues will be accompanied by the third in the ‘Queen: Deep Cuts’ compilation series, showcasing the albums’ lesser known material.

Each of the reissued albums went platinum in the UK and ‘A Kind of Magic’ and ‘Made in Heaven’ sold over one million copies. The band’s first ten albums were reissued earlier in the year.

Earlier this month, Queen drummer Roger Taylor announced his plans to rerelease his 1994 track, ‘Dear Mr Murdoch’, as a stand against the media tycoon.

The band’s guitarist, Brian May also made the headlines recently, after he launched an attack on a golf club when one of its members clubbed a tame fox and left it for dead.

Animal rights campaigner May joined the protest against against the Peterculter Golf Club in Aberdeen. He called the actions of member Donald Forbes a “senseless piece of brutality”.

Forbes, an oil boss, attacked the animal after it stole his Tunnock’s caramel wafer biscuit.
