Led Zeppelin will release a live album later this year, Jimmy Page confirmed in a new interview with Planet Rock Magazine.
Page spoke to the magazine for its sixth issue, and Music Week published some of his comments ahead of the magazine’s release on February 16.
“I can’t give the game away,” Page said, “but there’s a recording that’s another multi-track that we’ll release. It’s so different to all the other things that are out there. It’s another view compared to How The West Was Won or The Song Remains The Same. I’m looking forward to people hearing that.”
Page also said that he has plans to continue releasing Led Zeppelin material over the next 10 years. “There’s a lot of stuff to come out, a number of releases,” Page said. “I’d like to say that they’ll be coming out over the next 10 years. There’s more to come for sure.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Page was asked for his thoughts on whether Led Zeppelin would ever reunite and perform again. “I very much doubt it,” Page said. “You’ve just got to face facts. We’ve gone past the tenth anniversary of the 02, where we managed to do one serious concert. That’s the only thing that we’ve done for such a long time, so I very much doubt we’ll do anything else. I really think the time has gone.”
Photographer Ross Halfin posted a photo of inside of the magazine on Facebook. He said he photographed Page in London earlier this month for the issue:
And Page also complained that Led Zeppelin is being “ripped off” by the upcoming books being released for Led Zeppelin’s fiftieth anniversary. Page praised the official Led Zeppelin book, which is scheduled to be released in October.
“I’m really pleased that we’re all doing it collectively because there are so many other people doing books,” Page said. “There’s about 10 that I know of that are coming, which is pretty ridiculous! It will be really good to have an authoritative book, where the band are actually contributing to it rather than being ripped off.”
The full interview with Page will be available to read in the sixth issue of Planet Rock Magazine, which will be released on February 16. The interview with Page is part of a 22-page cover feature on Led Zeppelin.
The magazine will be released in four cover variants, one for each of the members of Led Zeppelin using their symbols from Led Zeppelin’s fourth album:
