Robert Plant has discovered some previously unreleased Led Zeppelin music, some of which features the band's bassist John Paul Jones on vocals.

Speaking to BBC 6Music, the rocker said to Mark Radcliffe and Stuart Maconie that he listened to the material with Jimmy Page and it is likely that the music will feature on the remastered releases of Led Zeppelin's back catalogue, which he is currently working on.

He said: "I found some quarter-inch spools recently. I had a meeting with Jimmy and we baked 'em up and listened to 'em. And there's some very, very interesting bits and pieces that probably will turn up on these things." Speaking about John Paul Jones' response to the material which features him on vocals, he joked that Jones is trying to bribe him not to release the songs. "So far, he's going to give me two cars and a greenhouse not to get 'em on the album," he said.

Earlier this year, Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis revealed that Led Zeppelin were at the top of her dream list for future headliners for the festival. Speaking to the BBC, Eavis was asked if there was a Post-it note on her fridge with her dream list written on. "Yeah, it’s on a napkin actually. On the fridge, there... We would love to have Adele. And we'd also love to have Led Zeppelin. I mean Zeppelin have got to do it, haven't they? It would be so good, wouldn't it," she said.
