The list of music releases coming in September, highlighted by a new Paul McCartney album, is a ‘who’s who’ and runs the gamut of musical genres.
The new McCartney disc, ‘Egypt Station,’ will be his first studio effort since 2013’s ‘New’ – and his first new music since a pair of collaborations with Kanye West in 2015.
Also on the slate is a solo album from ZZ Top frontman Billy Gibbons, the re-imagined Guess Who who are back with ‘The Future IS What It Used to Be,’ Ann Wilson’s new solo album ‘Immortal’ which reworks songs written by artists who have recently died and Paul Simon’s covers his own songs with, ‘In the Blue Light.’
September reissues include an expanded box-set version of Led Zeppelin’s 1976 live album and concert film ‘The Song Remains the Same,’ music from Bob Seger’s pre-Silver Bullet Band days and a deluxe 50th-anniversary reissue of Doors’ third album.
