Paul McCartney tops the list of September new music releases with his first studio effort since 2013's New – and his first new music since a pair of collaborations with Kanye West in 2015.

Elsewhere, ZZ Top frontman Billy Gibbons digs deeper into the blues, and the Guess Who are back with The Future IS What It Used to Be. Ann Wilson's new solo album Immortal reworks songs written by artists who have recently died, while Paul Simon's takes another pass at several of his own songs.

This month's live offerings are highlighted by a first-ever concert recording from Yes Featuring Anderson Rabin Wakeman, culled from their sold-out show last year in Manchester, England, and an album focusing on series of contemporary Lynyrd Skynyrd appearances in Atlantic City.

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 the Doors' third album.
