Unreleased Led Zeppelin Songs Discovered

led-zeppelinIt’s no secret that some highly anticipated digital reissues of Led Zeppelin’s studio album discography have been in the works for some time now. But in an interview with BBC Radio 6 on Wednesday, the band’s former vocalist Robert Plant revealed that he had recently discovered several unreleased tracks.

“I found some quarter-inch spools recently,” he said. “I had a meeting with Jimmy Page and we baked them up and listened to them. And there’s some very, very interesting bits and pieces that probably will turn up on these things.”

Plant also revealed that the unheard tracks feature a bit of an anomaly: bassist John Paul Jones sings lead vocals in them. “So far, he’s going to give me two cars and a greenhouse not to get them on the album,” Plant quipped.

Last year, guitarist Jimmy Page told Rolling Stone that he had been working on remastering the band’s discography. “The catalog was last remastered 20 years ago. That’s a long time. Everything is being transferred from analog to a higher-resolution digital format. That’s one of the problems with the Zeppelin stuff. It sounds ridiculous on MP3. You can’t hear what’s there properly,” Page said.

Even if this is the case, Led Zeppelin fans have much to look forward to with these new releases, capturing the band in a way never heard. There is currently no official release date for the reissues.
