Queen – A Kind Of Magic
A Kind of Magic is the twelfth studio album by the British rock band Queen, released on 2 June 1986 by EMI Records in the UK and by Capitol Records in the US. It was their first studio album to be recorded digitally, and is based on the soundtrack to the film Highlander, directed by Russell Mulcahy.
A Kind of Magic was Queen’s first album to be released since they had received acclaim for their performance at Live Aid in 1985. It was an immediate hit in the UK, going straight to number one and selling 100,000 copies in its first week. It remained in the UK charts for 63 weeks, selling 600,000 in the UK alone. The album spawned four hit singles: the album’s title track “A Kind of Magic“, “One Vision“, “Friends Will Be Friends“, and “Who Wants to Live Forever“, which features an orchestra conducted by Michael Kamen, while the last track, “Princes of the Universe“, is the theme song to Highlander. Although Queen would release another two albums with Freddie Mercury, A Kind of Magic would turn out to be his last album promoted with a concert tour, due to his diagnosis with AIDS the following year.
