Monty Python have unveiled a previously unheard track.

The comedy troupe premiered 'Lousy Song' today (06.05.14), which will feature on the upcoming re-issue of their classic 1989 album 'Monty Python Sings (Again)'.

The track was performed in 1980 by Eric Idle and hears Graham Chapman, who passed away in 1989, interrupting the recording to declare how much he dislikes it.

Speaking about the song, Eric said: "It is the only totally improvised sketch I can remember Python doing.

"Graham enters the recording studio when I'm listening back to a song I have recorded. I think it is very funny."

'Monty Python Sings (Again)' is set for release on June 9 with a box set of all their recordings, including three never-before-released songs and three new recordings.

'Monty Python's Total Rubbish: The Complete Collection' will then follow on June 30 and will feature all nine UK-released 'Monty Python' albums.

The new releases will coincide with 10 live shows at the O2 Arena in London in July, which will be the last time the veteran jokers will all perform together.

The reunion, which kicks off on July 1, will see Eric, Michael Palin, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, and take to the stage for the first time since 2009.
