New News – Robert Plant

Robert Plant has announced details of his new solo album ‘Band Of Joy’, to be released on 13th September.

The sometime Led Zeppelin singer picks things off where previous, Grammy awards winning, album ‘Raising Sand’ left off. Recorded in Nashville with guitarist Buddy Miller it sees the Rock legend back in a rootsier mood.

Plant says of Miller’s co-production of the album, “Buddy’s integral to this album, you can hear his taste all over the instrumentation. Buddy’s zone is beautiful, with a lot of reflections going back into mid-Fifties rockabilly, the singing fishermen and all the great country stuff, along with the soul and R&B from Memphis.”

“Band Of Joy” features intriguing new interpretations of songs from a wide range of sources. Opening with a throbbing rendition of Los Lobos’s ‘Angel Dance’, the album encompasses the glittering drone-rock of Low’s ‘Silver Rider’ and ‘Monkey’, the Fifties-style country-gospel harmonies which transform The Kelly Brothers’ Sixties soul classic ‘Falling In Love Again’, the desolate banjo-driven interpretation of ‘Satan Your Kingdom Must Come Down’, the transplanted English/Appalachian folk ballad ‘Cindy, I’ll Marry You Some Day’, and jangling blues imagery of ‘Central Two-0-Nine’.

    • To be honest it really hasn’t caught my attention, what I have seen has been poor, only the Germans have shown real flair, now that’s not something I ever thought I would say.

      Saving myself for the opening trip to Forfar on 7th August always a great away day.
