Fans of the late, great Freddie Mercury will be delighted to hear the news that a new book about Freddie is set to be released.

The news of the book comes after newly discovered interviews with Freddie, taken from magazines, newspapers and radio programmes.

Queen Specials found on old cassette recordings and reel-to-reel tapes were also discovered within the Freddie Mercury archive and used for the new book.

The new book is set to be an expanded version of 2009's Freddie Mercury: A Life, In His Own Words and "contains over 8,000 words of text not present in the book’s original print".

It is set for release sometime at the start of this month.

The 194-page book will discuss Freddie's life in his own words, across 20 chapters.
