On September 8th, rock legends Led Zeppelin simply posted the word 'five' to their Facebook page. Five being important as to suggest the album Led Zeppelin - V might be released. This was the first post the band has made in almost six months and it could be a sign of things to come, or an elaborate rouse.

No official word as of yet from the band but the internet seems abuzz with the hopes of the band's first new album in 30 years. Other sources claim that the band will release a new DVD/CD of their 2007 reunion for the Ahmet Ertegun tribute concert at London's O2 Arena, speculating it will see the light of day this November.

Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page's manager, Peter Mensch alluded to the upcoming release in a tweet on Saturday, writing: "it's almost here. I've seen it and heard it. almost 5 years to the day."

He also wrote before: "today, [producer/engineer Alan] Moulder continues with his stellar mixing of the O2 show. it's been 5 years coming and it's almost here."

My money is on the release of the DVD rather than an album of new material. Time will tell if I'm wrong, but I doubt it.

I doubt they will release new material (some time ago I read Plant was against it); if they want to release their reunion concert from 2007, it's perfectly OK i guess.

That would be interesting!

They'd call a new album Led Zeppelin V? I highly doubt it since that wouldn't make sense. My money is on a reunion DVD from what ^others have said.
iMorphball - 09.09.2012 at 16:37  
Hence the "seen it..." part, as well as 5 years to the day, seeing as they played a show at the O2 arena in December of 2007.

Yeah, it's a live DVD.

Hah, it's a countdown
There's "FOUR" now...
BloodTears - 09.09.2012 at 17:36  
And the plot thickens people...

It's the final countdown.

It makes sense to me, Led Zeppelin V would be a ballsy title

Even if it was a new album it probably wouldn't even be 1% of anything they released back in the day

I almost had a heart attack reading the title of this news article. My guess would be unreleased demos they did with John Bonham if its new. But, the live DVD is most likely. Pretty sure they said they wouldn't continue after Bonham's death, so chances of a new album are very small.

As other people have said, I think it's a countdown. Countdown to what? Can't tell, but at this point anything could happen, I suppose, so I won't say that it's going to be a new album or a live DVD or anything like that.
Black Conundrum - 10.09.2012 at 00:30  
Whatever it is, I probably won't end up buying it. Also, I'm fairly confident that it would not be a new studio album. I'll leave it up to other people to be excited about what's coming.

So...here is a what if question...

If they actually DID put out new material, what do you think it would sound like? Lots of people clearly don't think it would sound like anything from their heyday. I agree with that statement 100%. Do you think that it would sound like Led Zeppelin trying to cash in on the latest rock sound at the moment? Would they create something poppy?

I guess there are three answers: Music that sounds like something from their heyday, Led Zeppelin trying to cash in and make a few dollars by releasing some sort of pop rock album, OR, the guys from the band looking into the current popular rock styling at the moment and then going from there...

Don't forget that the fourth album isn't actually named at all (so it's not LZ4), it couldn't have been a new studio album anyway.
Giza - 10.09.2012 at 12:03  
I love all the Led Zepp albums, but Robert's solo work never appealed to me. It just seems too boring. I hope it's not a new studio album, but rather those fabled demo tapes that Jimmy Page hides under his mattress.

Since it's five years since the show, I bet it's the DVD.
Valentin B - 10.09.2012 at 22:20  
I really hope it's just the recording of the concert, after 30 years I doubt they (especially Plant) can pull off anything remotely similar in quality to their early 70's stuff.

your answer is the perfect example of how demanding LZ fans/listeners are (a lot of people kinda say the same thing).
I remember when Plant and Page did the Walking into Clarksdale album back in '98 if i remember right (a solid album if you ask me), people started saying it's not as good as Led Zeppelin (wtf, it was NOT a LZ album after all).

Actually Plant's music got better and better with time, especially staring with his 1993 album Fate of Nations. Dreamland (2002) and Mighty Rearranger (2005) are excellent IMO.

It's the O2 show. The video on their FB is the beginning of Good Times, Bad Times and sounds just like the bootleg I have of the show.

I actually agree that Page / Plant is not supposed to be LZ and I would never consider them the same band. What I'm saying is I don't have confidence that after 32 years and the death of one band member (LZ is imo one of the few bands where everyone had a share in creating the band's sound) they can put out a studio album worthy of having the name 'Led Zeppelin' on the cover..

LZ is almost like a guarantee of quality, one of those things that you expect to be good just by looking at it, it's one of rock's greatest names and I think it would be madness to try to recapture any of that in this vastly different age. Imo LZ is supposed to only exist now as a band that plays the old stuff in concert if anything.

It makes sense what you say there; it would be great if the musicians of LZ would make music together (like Page and Plant did), just not under the LZ name. Leave that alone. They haven't done it since '79, they should not do it now, I don't see a reason why anyway.
