Led Zeppelin preview unreleased song Keys To The Highway

Led Zeppelin are sharing a preview of “Keys To The Highway/Trouble In Mind”, an unreleased track that will be featured on the forthcoming reissue of their 1970 album, “Led Zeppelin III.”

The BBC reports the tune was recorded in 1970 at the Olympic Studios in Barnes in south-west London, about half an hour after “Hats Off to (Roy) Harper.”

"It was a particularly prolific time," says singer Robert Plant, "where we were learning about each other's capabilities. Jimmy [Page] and I were just fooling around with the stuff that we would play at home. We were just trying things out. Nothing was premeditated."

Page said he wanted to do something with the track that was in the genre of the country blues, but to make it “unnatural and surreal”.

Due June 2 (June 3 in North America), the band are also releasing reissues of “Led Zeppelin I” and “Led Zeppelin II” the same day.

Deluxe editions of the group’s first three albums are the first projects announced as part of an extensive reissue program that will see all nine of the band’s studio albums reissued in chronological order, each remastered by Page.

The reissues will be available in a variety of formats – learn more details here.
