Led Zeppelin and Taylor Swift lead this week’s new releases (October 27).

Led Zeppelin release new deluxe editions of their 1971 album ‘Led Zeppelin IV’ and its 1973 follow-up ‘Houses of the Holy’.

The new reissues include the original albums remastered by guitarist Jimmy Page, as well as previously unheard audio from the band’s archives including alternate mixes of ‘Rock And Roll’, ‘Misty Mountain Hop’ and ‘D’yer Mak’er’.


Both albums are available to purchase as a single album or vinyl LP, a deluxe double LP, or as a digital download. Also available is a super deluxe box set, which features the CDs, LPs, a download card and a special 80-page hardbound book.

Meanwhile, Taylor Swift releases her new album ‘1989’. The album features the singles ‘Shake It Off’ and ‘Out Of The Woods’, as well as the full version of the song ‘Welcome To New York’ which recently topped the iTunes Canada chart despite only comprising eight seconds of static.
