    Robert Plant spoke with PBS NewsHour's Jeffrey Brown about his new album, Carry Fire, and more. "Weaving—the musical weave in the beginning, the groove and the kind of—the essence of the music that surrounds the songs, but just being able to get to a place where the music is paramount, it’s discrete, slightly exotic," Plant says of the musical journey that led to the new album. Asked about its sounds and influences, he continues: "They just come from a fortunate life traveling and keeping good very company. I was always gathering more and more fuel. I was buying cassettes in the marketplaces and listening to variations on themes, and just such an amazing encyclopedia of music I developed slowly."
