Ahead of the release of their first-ever live album together, Queen and Adam Lambert have just shared an epic video of their live performance of 'I Was Born To Love You' from the Summer Sonic festival in Osaka, Japan.

The song originally appeared on Freddie Mercury’s 1985 solo LP Mr. Bad Guy, but Queen made it their own 10 years later on Made In Heaven.

"I had an obsession with the song and had the idea to make a new version, simulating how it would have sounded if we had been able to play it live with Freddie on stage," Queen guitarist Brian May said in a statement.

The Live Around The World album will be released worldwide on Friday 2 October.

The 20-song compilation features concert highlights personally selected by Roger Taylor, Brian May and Lambert from over 200 concerts, including their last performance before lockdown – the entire 22-minute Fire Fight Australia benefit set in which they recreated their iconic 1985 Live Aid set in full.
