"I just can't wait for this record ... When I was expecting for a North African, more exotic trip, Robert goes back home, to his celtic roots ... I love this soooooo much!" (Adriana, BBR Facebook Page).

"It takes me back to his Fate of Nations days. Really haunting but good." (Michelle, Led Zeppelin Ultimate Fan Page).

Readers and listeners worldwide are in a buzz of discussion about Robert Plant's new single, "Rainbow." This song is the first release from the highly anticipated record, lullaby and... The Ceaseless Roar. Nonesuch Records will publish the album in September, 2014. Some fans immediately recognized Plant's honorable return to his Celtic roots, Dreamland or the Fate of Nations sounds. Plant himself, acknowledged revisiting the "boundaries" of the roots from whence he's come. Listen to the newly published track here:

Plant gave followers a lovely walk through his homeland of comfort and inspiration with the album preview video. The breathtaking footage of the farms and fields not only was reminiscient of Plant's roots, but for readers, was also of his dear friend, John Henry Bonham. In the press release for the record, Plant does mention a "Zeppelin" feel to the record:

"It's really a celebratory record, powerful, gritty, African, Trance meets Zep," Plant says.

 


PRESS RELEASE:

Robert Plant's new album, lullaby and... The Ceaseless Roar, will be released September 9 on Nonesuch / Warner Bros. Records.

lullaby and... The Ceaseless Roar is Plant's first record since 2010's Band of Joy, which followed 2007's six-time Grammy Award–winning collaboration with Alison Krauss, Raising Sand. Justin Adams and John Baggott of The Sensational Space Shifters appeared on Plant's 2002 release Dreamland, while all but Camara and Smith appeared on 2005's Mighty Rearranger. The new-album line-up recently toured the world before recording lullaby and... The Ceaseless Roar at Helium Studios in Wiltshire and Real World Studios in Bath, UK. "Rainbow" was recorded in Contino Rooms in London. Tchad Blake mixed all but three tracks on the album.

"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," Plant explains. "....and now I'm able to express my feelings through melody, power and trance; together in a kaleidescope of sound, colour , and friendship"
