Robert Plant has announced he will release his next album, Carry Fire, on October 13 via Nonesuch/Warner Bros. The record marks the 11th solo studio album from the legendary Led Zeppelin frontman and first since 2014’s lullaby and… The Ceaseless Roar.
Carry Fire sees Plant once again backed by his Sensational Space Shifters on, with whom he has been recording and touring for years. The new album also features guest spots from Chrissie Hynde, cellist Redi Hasa and viola and fiddle player Seth Lakeman, the last of whom is now a full touring member of the Space Shifters. The band will kick off a world tour in the UK and Ireland in November, with dates to be announced soon.
Pre-orders for Carry Fire are available here, and the first track, “The May Queen,” can be heard below.
