The legendary rock band, Queen, announced today that they are making music history with the release of their new album, Absolute Greatest - the ultimate compilation of the band's most popular, enduring and iconic songs on EMI Music's Parlophone Records. In an industry first, Queen are joining up with Logitech to offer Absolute Greatest exclusively on the company's new Logitech Squeezebox Radio Wi-Fi music player. As of today, owners of the Logitech Squeezebox Radio can listen to the new Queen album before it hits the shops on November 16 and experience a series of unique Queen photos and track-by-track audio commentaries recorded by the band.
For seven weeks, leading up to the album's availability on November 16, Queen fans who own a Logitech Squeezebox Radio will have exclusive access to the complete Absolute Greatest album, track lyrics and a series of Queen photographs that have been made available for the first time. They can also enjoy exclusive track-by-track audio commentaries in which Brian May and Roger Taylor talk through the composition and history of each famous song. All they need to do is select the Queen application found under the Squeezebox Radio's new Apps menu.
Queen's Roger Taylor said: "What a thrill to be first past the post on this new and mind- boggling technological innovation; another exciting step on our long journey."
