Led Zeppelin stream Japanese single reissue of Immigrant Song

Led Zeppelin are streaming audio of a limited-edition 7” Japanese single of their 1970 classic, “Immigrant Song”, and its b-side, “Hey, Hey, What Can I Do”, as part of the 50th anniversary celebrations for “Led Zeppelin III.”

The band are reissuing a limited-edition, 7” vinyl edition of the record (19,700 copies) on January 15, 2021, and recently made it available for pre-orders.

A Top 20 hit around the world that currently ranks as the group’s second most-streamed track worldwide, the song’s lyrical references to Norse mythology were inspired by the band’s concert in Reykjavik, Iceland on June 22, 1970.

“Led Zeppelin III” was released in the US on October 5, 1970, with the UK and other countries following a few weeks later.

The band’s third album in less than two years would top the charts in several countries on its way to selling more than 13 million copies worldwide.
