Mastodon released their take on the Led Zeppelin classic “Stairway To Heaven” as a special Record Store Day release. The track is now streaming online, and will be officially released as a digital charity single on May 17th.
All 1,500 copies of the band’s limited edition 10″ vinyl pressing of their version of the song, entitled “Stairway To Nick John”, has sold out. The title pays tribute to their longtime manager who died last September and proceeds for the vinyl and digital single will benefit the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research. The band said: “we would not be the band we are today without the help of Nick John. We miss him dearly and think of him always. We love you buddy!”
