About the Album
Flash Gordon is the ninth studio album and the first soundtrack album by the British rock band Queen, released on 8 December 1980 in the United Kingdom by EMI Records and in February 1981 in the United States by Elektra Records. It was one of two film soundtracks that they produced along with Highlander. It is the soundtrack to the science fiction film Flash Gordon, and features lyrics on only two tracks. “Flash’s Theme” was the only single to be released from the album under the title “Flash”. The album reached #10 on the UK charts and #23 in the US. The album was reissued worldwide on 27 June 2011 (excluding the US and Canada, where it was released on 27 September 2011) as part of the band’s 40th anniversary. The reissue adds an EP of related tracks.
Unlike most soundtrack albums, audio from the film is prominently used in the songs.
