One of the most revered guitarists of all time, Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page has announced that he will be releasing a new record titled ‘Lucifer Rising And Other Sound Tracks,’ in just a few day’s time.
The album is compiled from tracks written by the legendary axeman in the early 70s, which were never officially released. Some of the material was set to feature in the 1972 short movie ‘Lucifer Rising;’ however, after reportedly penning 31 minutes worth of music for the film, Page and director Kenneth Anger had a falling out, resulting in the songs being omitted from the movie and remaining largely unheard for the next forty years.
Page made the announcement of the albums release in a Facebook post, which reads as follows: “On March 20th, the Spring Equinox 2012, the title music for Lucifer Rising And Other Sound Tracks will have its premiere and release. The title music, along with other musical pieces recorded at my home studio in the early Seventies, have been revisited, remixed and released for the first time.
“This is a musical diary of avant-garde compositions and experiments, one of which was to appear on the film Lucifer Rising. The collection has been exhumed and is now ready for public release. This will be available exclusively on the website.
“There will be a standard release on heavyweight vinyl. In addition, there will be a special run of 418 numbered copies. The first 93 copies will be signed and numbered. There are liner notes and commentary to each track.”
