Saxon have taken a new musical approach to their classic song, “The Eagle Has Landed.”

“The Eagle Has Landed” is only one of many songs revisited on Saxon’s new studio album, ‘Unplugged and Strung Up,’ which was released this past November. As the title implies, the album is heavily comprised of acoustic and orchestral takes on classic material.

Saxon issued a statement providing their thoughts on the new release: “We re-evaluated, reworked and re-energized the likes of “The Eagle Has Landed” and “Crusader” by introducing orchestral dynamics to offer an added dimension.”
