LED ZEPPELIN LAUNCH
50th ANNIVERSARY PLAYLIST PROGRAM


Jack White, Maná, And Royal Blood Curated Playlists Available Now;
More Playlists Set For Release Throughout The Year

"Led Zeppelin Playlist Generator" Allows Fans To Make
Their Own Personalized Led Zeppelin Playlists
And Design Their Name In The Band's Famous Font


 

In January 1969, Led Zeppelin was unleashed on the world with the release of their trailblazing debut album. Just 10 months later, in October 1969, the band's equally groundbreaking follow-up album Led Zeppelin II was released. 50 years later, Led Zeppelin remains one of the most important bands in music history whose songs continue to be discovered and embraced by each new generation.

To kick off the celebration of the band's historic golden anniversary, a new career-spanning digital album Led Zeppelin x Led Zeppelin was released last fall on all digital download and streaming platforms. Today, the band has kicked off a new playlist program that will allow fans and fellow artists to assemble their own, personalized Led Zeppelin playlists using the LED ZEPPELIN PLAYLIST GENERATOR. Via the generator, fans can build a playlist using any track from the Led Zeppelin catalog, including all their studio and live albums plus the deluxe editions released over the last few years. Once complete, the LED ZEPPELIN PLAYLIST GENERATOR will then create custom, personalized cover art to accompany the playlist and allow fans to share via social media. Fans can also use the program to generate their own personalized social media profile picture of their name in the famous Led Zeppelin font. Visit the site here.

The program launched today with playlists curated by Jack White, Maná, and Royal Blood, all of which cite Led Zeppelin as critical influences on their music, and will continue with playlists from other artists throughout the year.

LED ZEPPELIN x JACK WHITE features 10 tracks encompassing many stages of the band's career from their debut album ("How Many More Times") and early BBC Sessions ("Traveling Riverside Blues"), all the way through to "Two Ones Are Won" and "St. Tristan's Sword," which were unearthed rare tracks released for the first time during the band's recent reissue series. "They are an immovable force in music," says White. "I don't trust anyone who doesn't like them."

LED ZEPPELIN x MANÁ includes 16 songs selected by drummer Alex "El Animal" González, singer Fher Olivera, and guitarist Sergio Vallin. The list is a tour de force of classic tracks that plays like a Led Zeppelin greatest hits collection including "Kashmir," "Rock And Roll," "Black Dog," "Whole Lotta Love," "Ramble On," and "Communication Breakdown." "Led Zeppelin is a band that was so innovative in its sound, composition, and live concerts, that it continues and will continue to inspire many musicians and many groups," says González. "Undoubtedly one of the best bands in the history of rock."

LED ZEPPELIN x ROYAL BLOOD spotlights seven songs selected by band members Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher including some of the band's biggest hits such as "Immigrant Song" and "Good Times Bad Times" along with some beloved album tracks such as "In The Light" from Physical Graffiti. "Led Zeppelin's magic has always been about the chemistry that existed between the four members," says Kerr. "Nearly 50 years on and the quality of the songs, the guts and the swag on these recordings, is untouched."
