New Album From Robert Plant Due In October

Robert Plant will release a new album in October – his 11th studio album, called ‘Carry Fire”. Street date is October 13th  with  a single, ‘The May Queen,’ – a reference to ‘Stairway To Heaven’ – promoting the album.

Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders joins Plant on a cover of rockabilly singer Ersel Hickey’s 1958 ‘Bluebirds Over The Mountain’.

The Sensational Shape Shifters once again provide back up – augmented by Seth Lakeman on three tracks.

In an interview on BBC6 Music, Robert said: “It’s about intention. I respect and relish my past works, but each time I feel the incentive to create new work, I must mix old with new. Consequently, the whole impetus of the band has moved on its axis somewhat – the new sound and different space giving way to exciting and dramatic landscapes of mood, melody and instrumentation.”

Plant has a 14 show UK tour for November and December planned, but there are no U.S. dates in support of the new album announced.
