"Scarlet," a previously unheard Rolling Stones track featuring Jimmy Page on lead guitar, has been unearthed.

The track - which also features Blind Faith's Rick Grech on bass - was recorded during the sessions for the band's 1973 album, Goats Head Soup, and will be included in the upcoming multi-format, remastered reissue of that album. 

Though "Scarlet" itself has not been released yet, you can hear another previously unreleased track from the sessions, "Criss Cross," below.

As cool as this discovery is, it's not the only time Page and "The Greatest Rock and Roll Band in the World" have recorded together. Page also played on "One Hit (to the Body)," a Top 40 hit from the Stones' 1986 album, Dirty Work.  

The Goats Head Soup reissue, featuring "Scarlet," "Criss Cross" and a third previously unheard track, "All The Rage," will be available via Universal Music on September 4.

Fans can preorder it at The Rolling Stones' website (opens in new tab)
