Led Zeppelin’s frontman Robert Plant has unveiled a new music video for the single ‘Rainbow.’
Lullaby and… The Ceaseless Roar is Plant’s tenth solo album and the first studio one with his band The Sensational Space Shifters.
It was released last Friday and is on course for a top 3 entry in the Irish charts. The new record was produced by Plant and features eleven new tracks, nine of which were written by the Zepellin singer.
Speaking to Rolling Stone Plant said, “It’s really a celebratory record, powerful, gritty, African, trance meets ZEP. I am very lucky to work with The Sensational Space Shifters. They come from exciting areas of contemporary music.”
He added “I wrote the lyrics against an amazing link to those days, back in the 1930s and ’40s, when the south was the centre of the black revolution in music, before the Great Migration up to Chicago.”
This week, Plant said he would relish recording with Jack White, the revelation came out during a Facebook Q&A. “I love Jack White’s buccaneer spirit, the way he dodges through the musical horizons. I’d be happy to make a single with him.”
It seems like the collaboration is already all planned out, at least in Plant’s head, “I’d like to do a track called ‘Love Me’ which was originally recorded by The Phantom.”
