Robert Plant’s new album, ‘Carry Fire’, will be released October 13th on Nonesuch/Warner Bros. Records. His new single, ‘Bones Of Saints’, is from the album and is out now, accompanied by a great animated video.
‘Bones Of Saints’ is a thunderous track, and what you’d expect from a rock legend such as Plant. Featuring images from the Look And Learn History Picture Library, which is a collection of the world’s most unusual historical pictures and vintage imagery, it’s both a visually captivating and aurally pleasurable experience. At the same time however, with Plant’s gravelly vocals singing evocative lyrics such as “there’s madness in the sky above the bones of saints”, alongside captioned pictures from Look And Learn, and Biblical metaphors such as The Garden Of Eden, we’re painted a picture of the troubling times we’re living in. Plant isn’t happy with what’s going on in the world, and he’s not afraid to use his standing in the world of entertainment to get the message out.
‘Carry Fire’ will be supported by a UK and Ireland tour. You can see Robert Plant and the Space Shifters on the following dates.
