Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page has told 6 Music he is recording new music and is currently under new management.

Page, who has been inducted into the Mojo Hall Of Fame at the magazine's award ceremony in London last night, revealed he was working on new material with a number of different projects.

"I'm just looking forward to making some music and surprising people with it," he said. "It won't be just teaming up with lots of people who are [big] names. I've got an idea of something which I've had for a long time and now's the time to do it."

Page claimed he was now working with IE Management, and admitted it would be a change in direction from his previous offerings.

"I have got other ideas that have been nagging at me for a long long time, I think the way to present music is same picture different frame, and sometimes this frame is quite radical," he said.

According to Page the new material will be available later this year.
