The veteran British rock band will issue remastered versions of its first three albums -- Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II, and Led Zeppelin III -- that also contain several never-released songs and other surprises

Led Zeppelin will release remastered versions of Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II and Led Zeppelin III on June 3 with songs never previously released. Although the 1970s English metal band has reissued its albums several times, it has rarely released never-before-heard material.

The extra material includes a concert recorded in Paris in 1969, alternate mixes of certain songs, outtakes and four unreleased songs: “La La,” “Jennings Farm Blues,” “Bathroom Sound,” and a medley of “Key to the Highway” and “Trouble in Mind.”

As reported by the new York Times, the new material will be available either on CDs, records or digital download.
