Fresh from batting off a thousand and one questions about a Led Zeppelin reunion, Robert Plant has announced his new album ‘lullaby and…The Ceaseless Roar’.
The LP is released on September 8th and features original tracks written by Plant with The Sensational Space Shifters – namely Justin Adams, John Baggott, Juldeh Camara, Billy Fuller, Dave Smith and Liam ‘Skin’ Tyson.
The majority of the album was laid down at the Helium Studios in Wiltshire and Real World Studios in Bath, while ‘Rainbow’ was recorded at the Contino Rooms in London. “It’s really a celebratory record, powerful, gritty, African, Trance meets Zep,” Plant says.
“The whole impetus of my life as a singer has to be driven by a good brotherhood. I am very lucky to work with The Sensational Space Shifters. They come from exciting areas of contemporary music. I have been around awhile and I ask myself, ‘Do I have anything to say?’ Is there a song still inside me? In my heart?’.”
“I see life and what’s happening to me. Along the trail there are expectations, disappointments, happiness, questions and strong relationships. And now I’m able to express my feelings through melody, power and trance; together in a kaleidescope of sound, colour and friendship.”
