Despite it being over 30 years since his last full-on solo project, and years of hints and vague promises, Jimmy Page maintains 2019 will finally be the year he releases new original music. Blabbermouth reported during a new interview with Mark Goodman on SiriusXM Volume's Debatable show, the Led Zeppelin founder promised, "Yes, you'll definitely be getting stuff from Jimmy Page. I can guarantee that."

When pressed about upcoming Zeppelin projects tying in with next year's 50th anniversary, he added, "I've always got things in mind, and I always think of things as a schedule of releases over a period of time. I've never been, actually, any different. And, obviously, I would have ideas of things or projects, which could go ahead, but, y'know, it all takes time. So, at the moment, we've got this (book) out, so that's really brilliant. And who knows what may come further on down the line? I don't know. So I can't really say at this point."

Back on February 3rd, 2015, during a Zeppelin remasters listening session at London's famed Olympic Studios, Page shed some light on his upcoming unnamed solo project, revealing, "How it starts off is, you have to play guitar and get match-fit first. So currently I'm in the process of doing that. . . It'll be closer to the end of the year rather than next month. I'm definitely warming up on the touchlines! What I'm doing is something that's going to be quite different. It wouldn't be anything that hopefully you'd imagine I would do."

That same month he told Rolling Stone: "I intend to be doing something which obviously will surface as a sort of album somewhere. It'll surface further on down the line; I'm looking forward to doing whatever the project is. But if you think about all the areas that I've attempted, guitar, whether it's acoustic or electric or whatever, all the different approaches that I've done, it's just gonna be an extension of all of that, and that's it. So it's not just acoustic, it's not just electric, it's everything I can muster up."

That November, Bang Showbiz reported at London’s Classic Rock magazine's Roll of Honor Awards, Page shed some additional light on the still-untitled project, saying, ''Next year I'm just going to working on the guitar, it's time for me to go out there and do a solo album -- my last solo album was 1988. I haven't really milked the situation; it's time to do another one. I'm known for playing many styles of guitar, and I need to re-visit all the different styles I can play.' I’m not thinking about singers, I'm thinking of an instrumental thing -- I want to work with my strengths rather than my weaknesses. I want to work with myself, I want to get myself up and running and once I'm ready I'll think about whether I need someone to sing on the music. . . I want to be playing live again, but that won't be until next year, I've planned all this a while ago. I want to start in the UK, I've got ideas but I want to wait to see what happens. I'd like to do Glastonbury I could do a sort of karaoke night with Led Zeppelin songs.''

Jimmy Page recently explained the benefits of making music in collaboration: "The fact of playing with other, y'know, personalities -- musically, so, to speak -- can be an inspiration and you take it in an organic sense, the same way that we got here at this point. Y'know, working with the Egyptians, the Moroccans, and y'know, the Celtic areas. I mean, you can be inspired my working with these people; and that's basically what it is. If you get in a room and there's a particular, sort of, identity of sound coming from somewhere, and you can get inspired by it, and who knows what comes next? But up till this point, it's been pretty good."
