Robert Plant gears up for new album ‘Joy’


Robert Plant takes an eclectic dive into Americana roots music on new album “Band of Joy” (Rounder Records) due out Sept. 14. Album was co-produced by Plant and Nashville legend and guitarist Buddy Miller.

Album opens with a throbbing rendition of Los Lobos’ ‘Angel Dance’, and also features 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-O-Nine’.

In other kinda-related news, Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page has also revealed to the BBC that he was working on new material with a number of different projects.

“I’m just looking forward to making some music and surprising
people with it,” he said.
