As promised, The Rolling Stones have just released one of three previously unheard tracks that will appear on a deluxe box-set edition of their 1973 album Goats Head Soup. "Scarlett," a collaboration with Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page, was recorded in October 1974 after the Stones and Led Zep happened to find themselves in the same studio. “My recollection is we walked in at the end of a Zeppelin session,” Keith Richards recalls in a statement. “They were just leaving... and I believe that Jimmy decided to stay. We weren’t actually cutting it as a track, it was basically for a demo, but it came out well." Richards adds, "With a line up like that, you know, we better use it.” Consequence of Sound notes that "Scarlett” also features Blind Faith’s Rick Grech on bass. The new edition of Goats Head Soup will drop on September 4 and will include a four-disc CD and vinyl box set editions with 10 bonus tracks, including outtakes and alternative takes.
