Legendary rockers The Rolling Stones have announced their plans to rerelease their 1973 album Goats Head Soup as a massive deluxe box set.

Featuring outtakes, rarities, and alternative mixes to the classic tunes in Goats Head Soup, the box set will also include three previously unreleased songs, as well as a new stereo mix.

Announcing via Instagram, The Rolling Stones wrote, “welcome to Goats Head Soup 2020 — coming ‪September 4th‬ & featuring unheard tracks, demos, outtakes, live performances & more.”

One of the new tracks that will be hitting the box set is already out, titled ‘Criss Cross’, while the other two (which both feature guitars by Jimmy Page), are titled ‘All The Rage’ and ‘Scarlet’.

“You can listen to ‘Criss Cross’ now – one of three unheard tracks featured on Goats Head Soup 2020 – and pre-order the album across multiple formats, including expansive 4LP & 4CD boxsets. This classic album has been restored to its full glory with a new stereo album mix, sourced from the original session files”

As their press release states, “the layered guitar textures of ‘Scarlet’ make for a track that’s as infectious and raunchy as anything the band cut in this hallowed era.

“As well as Jimmy Page guesting alongside Mick and Keith on the track it also features on bass Rick Grech of Blind Faith fame…’All the Rage’ has a wild, post-‘Brown Sugar’ strut and the percussive ‘Criss Cross’ rocks and swaggers as only the Stones can.”

Although the new version of Goats Head Soup will be available as a stand-alone CD, the massive complete box set will include four CDs, a complete concert that was filmed in Brussels, Belgium in October of 1973, as well as four posters, and a massive 120-page book.

The album in all its new 2020 glory is available for pre-order via JB Hi-Fi, as well as many other outlets.
