    Lynyrd Skynyrd are celebrating their 50th anniversary with a new box set titled FYFTY, which arrives October 13th.

    The collection will be available as a 4-CD box set and digitally, culling dozens of tracks to form a career-spanning audio chronology of Lynyrd Skynyrd’s recorded output.

    Disc 1 opens with the original Muscle Shoals version of “Comin’ Home” before presenting the some of the band’s most well-known recordings for MCA — “Tuesday’s Gone,” “Sweet Home Alabama,” and “Gimme Back My Bullets,” to name a few — in linear fashion.

    Other notable compositions are presented in live form, including a previously unreleased performance of “Free Bird” and a poignant rendition of “Gimme Three Steps,” which was recorded at Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee, on November 13th of last year — guitarist Gary Rossington’s final Lynyrd Skynyrd show before his passing in March of this year.

    “We miss him so much,” wrote Johnny Van Zant in the liner notes for the box set. “What kept me going was calling [Rossington] and having these conversations. He was my cheerleader. So now I’m gonna have to remember his voice to keep my spirits up and keep this thing going… as a tribute, and so people remember him and Ronnie and all the others who have been part of this.”


    The physical version of FYFTY is housed in a 12-inch gatefold jacket that holds a detailed 40-page booklet featuring opening notes penned by a filmmaker and longtime friend of the band Cameron Crowe, along with liner notes and track-by-track analysis by Detroit rock writer Gary Graff. The book also includes unreleased photos of the original band and the modern iteration of Skynyrd.

    Lynyrd Skynyrd are in the midst of a co-headlining North American tour with ZZ Top. Tickets are available here.

    You can pre-order FYFTY via Lynyrd Skynyrd’s website. See the full tracklist below.
