Though Jimmy Page has also been fending off claims of plagiarism of late, he seems mostly focused on the set of albums he's remastering and reissuing on June 3. As previously detailed, those touched up first three albums are set to come with a bunch of alternate mixes and outtakes and today you can hear an unearthed version of "Heartbreaker."

The Led Zeppelin II cut is presented here in a slightly more scrappy and rough-hewn form, one that Page says "presents portal to the time of the recording of Led Zeppelin," according to Blabbermouth. You can stream the alt version at Parade until Monday June 2, at which point the reissues start rolling out.

Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II, and Led Zeppelin III will all come out June 3 in remastered and expanded editions via Atlantic/Swan Song.
