The 22-track collection, which was produced by Brian May and Roger Taylor, launched on CD, LP, cassette and via digital platforms in October, and featured previously unreleased audio from the Queen (opens in new tab)'s legendary Live Aid performance in 1985.

The 2LP version will arrive on February 8, while it’s also been announced that a limited edition picture disc, along with a 7-inch single featuring Bohemian Rhapsody and backed with I’m In Love With My Car will launch to coincide with Record Store Day (opens in new tab) 2019 on April 13.

Pre-order details for the 2LP will be announced in due course.

Bohemian Rhapsody premiered  at the end of October, went on general release in November, and has already gone on to become the biggest-selling music biopic of all time. 

It stars Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury, Gwilym Lee as Brian May, Ben Hardy as Roger Taylor, Joe Mazzello as John Deacon and Lucy Boynton as Mercury's lifelong companion Mary Austin. 

Earlier this month, it was confirmed that Malek had received a Golden Globe nomination in the Best Performance By An Actor In A Motion Picture - Drama category, while the film is up for Best Motion Picture - Drama (opens in new tab).

The winners will be revealed at the 76th Golden Globe Awards, which will take place at the Beverly Hilton, Beverly Hills, on January 6.
