Queen: Freddie Mercury NEW music video marks birthday – WATCH | Music | Entertainment

Today marks what would have been the late Freddie Mercury’s 73rd birthday. 

And to celebrate the iconic Queen singer a brand new music video has been released, ahead of a solo collection box set.

The stunning and emotional animation, made in collaboration with The Mercury Phoenix Trust, accompanies Freddie’s 1985 track Love Me Like There’s No Tomorrow.

The visual accompaniment depicts the story of two male lovers as they come to terms with one of them being diagnosed with AIDS.

Directors Esteban Bravo and Beth David said of making the music video: “We wanted to tell a story that was relevant to Freddie’s life, but not explicitly about him.”

“The AIDS crisis of the 1980s is a huge part of LGBT+ history, and it’s something that we knew needed to be handled with care. 

“It’s a fine line to walk between shedding light on a subject, and perpetuating a stigma, and we were cautious not to lean into tropes and stereotypes that might hurt the modern understanding of the AIDS virus, rather than help it. 

“In researching the HIV/AIDS virus and the way it affects the body’s immune system, we were inspired to take a look at the story through a more microscopic lens. 

“It is a love story between two white blood cells, one of which has become infected by the virus. 

“This perspective gave us a more direct visual representation of our conflict, which allowed us to explore the more nuanced struggles the characters face in their relationship with each other, their perceptions of themselves, and society’s perception, bias, and neglect of them.”

Love Me Like There’s No Tomorrow is included in Never Boring, the definitive Freddie Mercury solo collection, which is released worldwide on October 11.

The album’s cover is inspired by this famous quote from the singer: “You can do anything with my work, but never make me boring.”

The Never Boring box set “brings together for the first time a specially-curated selection of Freddie Mercury’s music, visuals and written and spoken words.

“It is a collection to jog the memory of fans, old and new, as to why Freddie remains such a beloved figure, nearly 30 years after his death.”

Below is a list of the track listings and videos that feature on the Blu-ray/DVD in the box set.
