Watch the trailer for Led Zeppelin II reissue

A trailer for the forthcoming reissue of Led Zeppelin's second album'Led Zeppelin II has been released.

Click below to watch the clip, which is soundtracked by the previously unreleased rough mix of "Whole Lotta Love". New song "La La" will appear on the second disc of Led Zeppelin II and the album's companion audio will also include alternate mixes of five songs from the album plus backing tracks to "Thank You" and "Living Loving Maid (She’s Just A Woman)". On June 2 the deluxe editions of Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II and Led Zeppelin III will all be released. The new trailer follows a similar promo clip released to trail the new version of 'Led Zeppelin', which you can watch here.

"The material on the companion discs presents a portal to the time of the recording of Led Zeppelin," said Jimmy Page. "It is a selection of work in progress with rough mixes, backing tracks, alternate versions and new material recorded at the time." All tracks have been remastered by Page and all nine of the band's studio albums are due to be reissued in the same style.

The additional audio disc accompanying Led Zeppelin III will feature "Jennings Farm Blues", "Bathroom Sound" and "Keys To The Highway/Trouble In Mind". All of these songs have been previously available on bootlegs but the new reissue of the three albums will mark the first time the tracks have been made widely available.
