First wave of Led Zeppelin reissues coming June 3rd

We knew it was coming in 2014, we just didn’t know when! Swan Song and Rhino have finally announced when we will see the first three deluxe editions of all of Led Zeppelin’s studio albums.

No matter how many times you may have listened to their music, you’ve never heard Led Zeppelin like this before.

Beginning with the June 3rd release of deluxe editions of Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II, and Led Zeppelin III, the band will launch an extensive reissue program of all nine of its studio albums in chronological order, each remastered by guitarist and producer Jimmy Page. Led Zeppelin will also open its vaults to share dozens of unheard studio and live recordings, with each album featuring a second disc of companion audio comprised entirely of unreleased music related to that album.

“The material on the companion discs presents a portal to the time of the recording of Led Zeppelin,” says Page. “It is a selection of work in progress with rough mixes, backing tracks, alternate versions, and new material recorded at the time.”

Each album is now available for pre-order in the following formats:
