Led Zeppelin are premiering “Hots On For Nowhere (Reference Mix)”, an unreleased mix of the original track as featured on the forthcoming expanded reissue of their 1976 album, “Presence.”

Due July 31, the project features the original album plus a bonus disc featuring five unreleased mixes from the sessions, including alternate versions of “For Your Life,” “Achilles Last Stand” and “Royal Orleans” alongside the previously unheard instrumental, “10 Ribs & All/Carrot Pod Pod (Pod).”

Led Zeppelin’s seventh album, “Presence” hit No. 1 on both sides of the Atalantic, topping the UK charts and the US Billboard 200 on its way to selling more than 3 million copies in the States alone.

“Presence” is one of three albums set to be issued on July 31 that will wrap up a year-long reissues campaign by the group; also due is 1979’s “In Through The Out Door” and 1982’s “Coda.”

All three have been newly remastered by guitarist and producer Jimmy Page and are accompanied by a companion audio disc featuring previously unreleased material related to the original release.
