On November 19th, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss will return with new album Raise The Roof, delivering a fresh, cosmic collision of early blues, country deep cuts, revolutionary folk-rock and lost soul music written by a dozen legends and unsung heroes of the past century. The long-awaited reunion marks the duo’s first record in 14 years, produced by T Bone Burnett, and the track list reflects both deep-rooted influences and recent revelations.
Robert Plant will mark the eagerly awaited third season of his hugely popular podcast, ‘Digging Deep with Robert Plant’, with the release of a career-spanning new 2-CD set ‘Digging Deep’. The limited edition collection – also available for streaming and digital download – gathers 30 extraordinary songs spanning four decades, including three previously unreleased new tracks. ‘Digging Deep’ will be available worldwide via Plant’s own Es Paranza label on Friday, October 2nd.
Robert Plant’s critically acclaimed eleventh studio album, ‘Carry Fire’, debuted in the top 3 on the UK Album charts last year, and he’s certainly not let the grass grow under his feet, with the launch of his brand new website, featuring a “Jukebox” of tracks from the album. Each selection gives the options of streaming the track via Apple Music, Spotify, Deezer, or YouTube. You can try it out here.
Robert Plant’s had one hell of a career. Singing in the Sixties, he joined Led Zeppelin in 1969 and went on to forge a legendary series of albums with the band. While they were best-known for their heavy rock, drawing from timeless blues classics, they also turned out many a calming folk tune, often written in a cottage named Bron-Yr-Aur nestled in the heart of Wales. And the end of Led Zeppelin didn’t mean the end of Plant; in the years since, he’s not only endured but matured, broadening his body of work with elements from across the globe.
Chrissie Hynde joins Robert on the duet ‘Bluebirds Over The Mountain’ (written by rockabilly legend Ersel Hickey and later recorded by both Richie Valens and The Beach Boys). Like the video for his previous release ‘Bones Of Saints’, the animated video features vintage images from Look And Learn’s Historic Picture Library.
Robert Plant is set to release his 11th album, ‘Carry Fire’, on October 13, through Nonesuch/Warner Bros. His first full-length release since his highly acclaimed ‘lullaby and…The Ceaseless Roar’, released in 2014, was produced by Robert at Top Cat studio, in Box, Wiltshire, with further recordings at Real World and Rockfield Studios.
