Robert Plant has released a new song from his forthcoming album, Carry Fire, due out October 13th. Hear “Bones of Saints” in the player below.
Carry Fire is Plant’s 11th solo album and the first full-length release since 2014’s acclaimed lullaby and…The Ceaseless Roar. The new album was produced by Plant and features a number of special guests including Chrissie Hynde – who performs a duet with Plant on “Bluebirds Over The Mountain – as well as Albanian cellist Redi Hasa, and Seth Lakeman on viola and fiddle . Plant’s band, the Sensationational Space Shifters, also join him on the album.
Plant and the Space Shifters (which now includes Lakeman) will celebrate Carry Fire‘s release by beginning a world tour in November 2017 starting in UK & Ireland and touring all corners of globe from thereon. Dates will be announced soon.
“It’s about intention, I respect and relish my past works but each time I feel the lure and incentive to create new work,” says Plant. “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”.
Carry Fire is available now for pre-order.
