The rock star talks about his new project in a special video message.

Rocker Robert Plant will be releasing his new album Lullaby And ... The Ceaseless Roar on Sept 9 (Warner Music). It features 11 new tracks, nine of which were written by Plant and members of his band, The Sensational Space Shifters (Justin Adams, John Baggot, Juldeh Camara, Billy Fuller, Dave Smith and Liam “Skin” Tyson).

The first single from the album, Rainbow, and a trailer for Lullaby And ... The Ceaseless Roar were released a few weeks ago.

The album is Plant’s first full project since Band Of Joy in 2010, and is a “celebratory record”, he says in a statement.

“It’s really a celebratory record, powerful, gritty, African, Trance meets Zep (Led Zeppelin) ... The whole impetus of my life as a singer has to be driven by a good brotherhood. I am very lucky to work with The Sensational Space Shifters. They come from exciting areas of contemporary music ... I have been around awhile and I ask myself, do I have anything to say? Is there a song still inside me? In my heart? I see life and what’s happening to me. Along the trail there are expectations, disappointments, happiness, questions and strong relationships.

“... And now I’m able to express my feelings through melody, power and trance; together in a kaleidescope of sound, colour, and friendship,” he continues in the official statement.

Lullaby And ... The Ceaseless Roar track list: Little Maggie (a traditional track), Rainbow, Pocketful Of Golden, Embrace Another Fall, Turn It Up, A Stolen Kiss, Somebody There, Poor Howard, House Of Love, Up On The Hollow Hill (Understanding Arthur) and Arbaden (Maggie’s Baby).

Plant talks about working on the album and finding a new musical direction in the video below.
