Robert Plant – Rainbow

Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters are set to release a new album…

Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant has announced details of a new album with his band The Sensational Shape Shifters.

‘lullaby and…The Ceaseless Roar’ will be released on September 8. Produced by Plant, it features 11 new recordings, nine of which are songs written by Plant with the rest of the band…

It is Plant’s first record since 2010’s ‘Band Of Joy’, which followed 2007’s collaboration with Alison Krauss, ‘Raising Sand’. The all-new lineup of the band features Justin Adams, John Baggot, Juldeh Camara, Billy Fuller, Dave Smith along with Cast guitarist Liam ‘Skin’ Tyson.

“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.”
