Lost Rolling Stones song featuring Jimmy Page released

The Rolling Stones released on Wednesday previously unheard and never before released song called ‘Scarlet’. The track was recorded in October 1974 featuring Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page. The previously unreleased track follows the huge success and acclaim of the Stones' "Living In A Ghost Town" and will feature on the upcoming 4 September multi-format release of Goats Head Soup 2020.

With its layered guitar textures, ‘Scarlet’ is as infectious and raunchy as anything the band cut in this hallowed era, a holy grail for any Stones devotee. As well as Jimmy Page featuring alongside Mick and Keith, the long-lost track also guests Blind Faith's Rick Grech on bass.

“I remember first jamming this with Jimmy and Keith in Ronnie's basement studio. It was a great session,” Mick Jagger commented. “'My recollection is we walked in at the end of a Zeppelin session. They were just leaving, and we were booked in next and I believe that Jimmy decided to stay. We weren't actually cutting it as a track, it was basically for a demo,” Keith Richards added.

‘Scarlet’ will feature on the box set and deluxe CD and vinyl editions of the forthcoming multi-format release of 1973 classic Goats Head Soup, joined by two previously unreleased tracks ‘All The Rage’ and ‘Criss Cross’, plus many more rarities, outtakes and alternative mixes. Goats Head Soup, restored to its full glory and more, will be released in multi-format and deluxe editions on 4 September.
