The Rolling Stones has released a video for their previously unreleased track, ‘Scarlet’.

The song was recorded in October 1974 and features Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page sitting in on a session with Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.

It also features Traffic’s Ric Grech on bass, Ian Stewart on piano and drummer Bruce Rowland from Joe Cocker’s Grease Band.

It’s named after Page’s daughter.

“My recollection is we walked in at the end of a Zeppelin session,” recalled Richards.

“They were just leaving, and we were booked in next, and I believe that Jimmy decided to stay.

“We weren’t actually cutting it as a track; it was basically for a demo, a demonstration, you know, just to get the feel of it, but it came out well.

“With a lineup like that, you know, we better use it.”

‘Scarlet’ is one of three previously unreleased songs included in an upcoming box set dedicated to 1973’s Goats Head Soup. ‘Criss Cross’ and ‘All the Rage’ are the other two, as well as  seven instrumentals and alternate mixes.
