Robert Plant’s new album, ‘Carry Fire’, will be released October 13th on Nonesuch/Warner Bros. Records. ‘Carry Fire’, his eleventh

solo album and first full-length release since 2014’s acclaimed ‘lullaby and...The Ceaseless Roar’, was produced by Robert at Top Cat studio in Box, Wiltshire with additional recordings at Real World and Rockfield studios.

As with ‘lullaby and...The Ceaseless Roar’, Robert is accompanied by The Sensational Space Shifters: John Baggott on keyboards, moog, loops, percussion, drums, brass arrangement, t’bal, snare drum, slide guitar, piano, electric piano, bendir; Justin Adams on guitar, acoustic guitar, oud, E-bow quartet, percussion, snare drum, tambourine; Dave Smith on bendir, tambourine, djembe, drum kit; and Liam “Skin” Tyson on dobro, guitar, acoustic guitar, pedal steel, twelve-string.

Robert Plant and the Space Shifters are also joined on ‘Carry Fire’ by a number of special guests. Chrissie Hynde joins Robert on the duet

“Bluebirds Over The Mountain” (written by rockabilly legend Ersel Hickey and later recorded by both Richie Valens and The Beach Boys). Albanian cellist Redi Hasa performs on three tracks, as does the aforementioned Seth Lakeman on viola and fiddle.

Robert Plant and the band spent two years on the road together supporting ‘lullaby and...The Ceaseless Roar’, their unique sound and vision ultimately evolving into something even more creative and powerful.????

Robert, who lived in Texas for a time before returning to England three years ago, together with his friends, present the songs Carry Fire, melding unusual rhythms with naturalism and smouldering power.?

“It’s about intention, I respect and relish my past works but each time I feel the trawl and 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”.
