Queen + Adam Lambert release live video for Somebody To Love

50

Queen + Adam Lambert have released a live video of the 1976 Queen classic Somebody To Love, filmed at the 2016 Isle Of Wight Festival and taken from the band’s recent Live Around The World album.

The clip shows Lambert interacting with the crowd as the song climaxes, engaging in the kind of audience call-and-response perfected by Freddie Mercury before nailing the very highest of high notes.

“Adam has the ability to sing anything and everything we throw at him,” says Roger Taylor. “There’s nothing he can’t handle. Our songs are big and theatrical and Adam fits that easily. I think he’s the best singer around. His range is staggering.”

“Some of Queen’s songs are just so vocally athletic and physically demanding”, says Lambert. “For example, The Show Must Go On is certainly demanding, Who Wants To Live Forever goes from zero to 99. Somebody To Love is really intense and big.”

Live Around The World features tracks that were personally selected by Taylor, Lambert and guitarist Brian May from more than 200 performances, and include Freddie Mercury’s iconic ‘Ay-Ohs’ section.

May says: “As we all grapple with the challenge of creating live shows in a world dominated by a formidable viral enemy, it seemed the perfect time for us to create a collection of hand-picked live highlights from our Queen shows over the years with our brother Adam Lambert.

“As you watch and listen to these tracks, you’ll be journeying all around the world with us and experiencing a complete virtual live set.
