Led Zeppelin Album Remasters Coming in Multiple Box Sets
Jimmy Page-helmed reissues expected in 2013
When it comes to next year’s Led Zeppelin remasters, the songs won’t remain the same. According to the NME, Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page recently told Mojo that every single album by the British rockers will get its very own box set, complete with alternate versions of the band’s well-worn classics.
“There are a number of Led Zeppelin projects that will come out next year because there are different versions of tracks that we have that can be added to the album so there will be box sets of material that will come out, starting next year,” Page said. “There will be one box set per album with extra music that will surface.”
Graphic designer Shepard Fairey is working on the art for the upcoming reissues, the Australian reported.
Led Zeppelin will reunite for one night only at the Kennedy Center Honors, where they will perform and be honored, broadcast by CBS on December 26 at 9 p.m. EST. Celebration Day, the box-office smash documenting the band’s 2007 London O2 Arena tribute concert comes to DVD on November 19, and may soon open worldwide in theaters depending on audience demand.
