Robert Plant Short Film


    Led Zeppelin’s singer, Robert Plant, has released his second movie trailer for his upcoming album.

    The second trailer titled Returning To The Boarders, explores the themes of his new album Lullaby And… The Ceaseless Roar.

    Lullaby And… The Ceaseless Roar was produced by Plant and features eleven new tracks, nine of which were written by Plant. It’s his tenth solo album and the first studio one with his band The Sensational Space Shifters.

    Plant told Rolling Stone about the new record, “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,” Plant said.

    Plant and The Sensational Space Shifters formed in 2012, last year they played Electric Picnic alongside Johnny Marr.

    Commenting on the themes in the new film trailer, Plant said, “I’ve been away a long time from these borders. I spent a lot of time traveling through the south. I was searching to see if I could find out the character of the area from the radio that was on in the car, he said.”

    He continued speaking about writing lyrics for Lullaby And… The Ceaseless Roar, “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.”
