An unreleased Rolling Stones song featuring Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page and Blind Faith’s Rich Grech will be included in the upcoming reissue of the Stones’ 1973 LP, Goats Head Soup, due out 4 September.
The song, titled Scarlet, is one of three unpublished Stones rarities unearthed for the reissue; the two other tracks include All The Rage and Criss Cross, which the band has shared ahead of time. Take a listen below.
Goats Head Soup, the Stones’ 11th British studio album, was the follow-up to the highly acclaimed Exile On Main St. The album’s sessions were carried out in Jamaica, Los Angeles and London, and marked the band’s last collaboration with producer Jimmy Miller. In this reissue, the 10-track album sees new 5.1 surround sound and Dolby Atmos mixes.
The deluxe edition of Goats Head Soup will also include Brussels Affair, a 15-track live album recorded in Belgium on the autumn ‘73 tour following the record’s release. The live record was mixed by famed engineer Bob Clearmountain, who had also worked on the Stones’ 1981 LP, Tattoo You.
Additionally, deluxe editions will include a 120-page book, composed of rare photographs, essays by Ian McCann, Nick Kent and Daryl Easlea, as well as four faithful replicas of four Stones tour posters from 1973.
The Rolling Stones’ Goats Head Soup reissue releases in a number of both CD and vinyl physical editions, which can be viewed here.
