The Rolling Stones have shared “Scarlet,” a previously unreleased song recorded in October 1974 featuring Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page. Hear it below. “Scarlet” will appear on the upcoming reissue of the Stones’ 1973 album Goats Head Soup. Reflecting on the unearthed track, Mick Jagger wrote, “I remember first jamming this with Jimmy and Keith in Ronnie’s basement studio. It was a great session. ”
Keith Richards 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, a demonstration, you know, just to get the feel of it, but it came out well, with a line up like that, you know, we better use it.”
The Rolling Stones’ Goats Head Soup reissue is out September 4 (via Polydor/Interscope/UMe). Read Pitchfork’s Sunday Review of Tattoo You.
