Led Zeppelin announce ‘The Song Remains The Same’ reissue

Led Zeppelin have announced a reissue of ‘The Song Remains The Same’.

The classic rock group are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year. Guitarist Jimmy Page previously teased “all manner of surprises” to mark the milestone.

‘The Song Remains The Same’ was the soundtrack to the band’s 1976 concert film, which was filmed at New York’s Madison Square Garden in 1973. A new edition of the album will be released on September 7 in multiple formats.

A super deluxe box set will house the film and soundtrack together in the same package for the first time and include many other treats. The box set will also feature a 28-page book of photos, stills, and an essay written by Cameron Crowe, a replica of a Japanese program from 1977, a high-quality print of the original album cover, and more.

The reissue will also be available on CD, a four-vinyl LP set, and Blu-Ray. It includes live versions of classic Led Zeppelin tracks such as ‘Dazed And Confused’, ‘Stairway To Heaven’, ‘Celebration Day’ and more.

Meanwhile, Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones have been working together on a new book, titled Led Zeppelin By Led Zeppelin. It will be the “first and only official illustrated book to be produced in collaboration with the members of the band.”

Page has also discussed rumours the band would reunite to perform live again this year. “I very much doubt it,” he said when asked if an anniversary concert would take place. The group last played together at London’s The O2 in 2007, where they were joined by John Bonham’s son Jason on drums.
