Led Zeppelin’s 1976 album The Song Remains The Same is to be reissued later this year.
The soundtrack to the band's concert film of the same name was recorded at New York’s Madison Square Garden in July 1973, with guitarist Jimmy Page personally overseeing the remastering of the new release, which is scheduled to arrive on September 7 via Atlantic/Swan Song.
The album will be released on CD, vinyl, on digital platforms, as a hi-res 5.1 surround sound Blu-ray and a Super Deluxe box set.
The box set will recreate the embossed cover of the original and will also be the first time the full-length film and soundtrack have been available in the same package.
Meanwhile, on the 4LP set, Page has changed the track sequence, allowing the 29-minute version of Dazed And Confused to appear in full on one side of vinyl for the very first time.
The Song Remains The Same is the latest release celebrating the band’s 50th anniversary. Earlier this year, How The West Was Won (opens in new tab) was reissued, while a 7-inch yellow vinyl (opens in new tab) featuring the Sunset Sound Mix of Rock And Roll and the Olympic Studio Mix of Friends was introduced to mark Record Store Day.
An official 50th anniversary photo book (opens in new tab) will be released in October by Real Art Press.
