Former Led Zeppelin star Jimmy Page has promised fans he will make ''radical musical statements'' with his upcoming solo album.
Jimmy Page has promised to make a "radical" solo album.
The former Led Zeppelin star is currently working on his first new LP since 1988 and has warned fans to open their expectations of the music.
He said: "I think it's very important to do some musical statements with new material and that's exactly what I plan to do over the forthcoming year. Musically it will be a different picture in quite a radical frame, I hope. I'd like to try some ambitious projects. But we'll see."
Jimmy also played down rumours of a rift between himself and former bandmate Robert Plant, insisting they get on "fine" and claiming to be a big fan of the singer's recent work with Alison Krauss.
He added: "the one thing I don't want to do is to try to make it look as though I'm trying to be controversial about what they're doing. Whatever anyone else does is fine. Theirs was a really acclaimed album, and it's really good."
