With all of the noise surrounding the wishes of a Led Zeppelin reunion, especially with Jimmy Page being fed up with Robert Plant’s reticence, and Plant’s rather eloquent rebuttal about not “being bored”, it’s a wonder anything got done. But Robert Plant did say that he was busy, and not interested in any such trivial “jukebox” adventures. For some fans, that’s great news.
It is now known that Robert Plant has a new album coming on September 9 via his new label, Nonesuch Records. The new album is being called lullaby and…The Ceaseless Roar (yes, that’s the title and the correct case for part of it), and is being called “a celebratory record, powerful, gritty, African, Trance meets Zep”. Well, how much fun can that be?
The album is being preceded by a song, “Rainbow”, which you can enjoy below. I have to say…I like it! It still makes Robert Plant feel very compelling.
