"Hammer of the gods..."

Led Zeppelin will re-issue 'Immigrant Song' on seven inch vinyl.

The rock giants are toasting the 50th anniversary of their seminal album 'Led Zeppelin III', a record that matched crunching stadium anthems against pastoral acoustic workouts.

Famously not keen on the singles marketplace, Led Zeppelin did give 'Immigrant Song' - the album's titanic opener - a Japanese 45 release.

Now, to celebrate the album's milestone birthday, the Japanese edition will be given a vinyl re-issue.

Limited - it says on the press note - to 19,700 copies, 'Immigrant Song' will be paired with the non-album 'Hey, Hey, What Can I Do'.

Out on January 15th, the single will be available to pre-order from Thursday (October 8th).
