Mary J. Blige will include two all-star covers of Led Zeppelin songs on her next album.
The soul singer will reissue her album 'Stronger With Each Tear' including the two tracks - originally by the English hard rock group - which she recorded with Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker, 'American Idol' judge Randy Jackson and guitar legend Steve Vai.
She told MTV News: "I did Led Zeppelin's 'Stairway to Heaven' and 'Whole Lotta Love' - it's crazy. I am a Led Zeppelin fan. I'm not going to say I've been to their concerts, but I've listened to their music since I was a child, and it's always moved me, especially 'Stairway to Heaven', and 'Whole Lotta Love' is just fun."
She also said she has recorded another song for the release, which she describes as a "club record" called 'I Can't Wait', which will also be included on the album.
'Stronger With Each Tear' will be released in Europe on Monday (15.03.10).
