    Robert Plant's New Album Featured on NPR's "All Songs Considered"
    Ed Miles

    Robert Plant's forthcoming album, lullaby and... The Ceaseless Roar, is featured on the latest episode of NPR Music's All Songs Considered. Host Bob Boilen selects the album track "Rainbow" to showcase on the program.

    "Trying to think of artists who’ve made music from the past who make relevant music, or at least music that expands the boundaries of what you’re used to hearing from them … making something fresh," posits Boilen. "The artist that came to mind is Robert Plant. I’m so in love with what he has tackled in the last decade or so and the projects he’s done. He’s got a new one called lullaby and… The Ceaseless Roar … It is just one great record … The sounds are fabulous."

    You can listen to All Songs Considered and hear "Rainbow" at npr.org.

    lullaby and… The Ceaseless Roar is due September 9 on Nonesuch/Warner Bros. Records. Pre-orders are available now at robertplant.com and include a limited-edition print and an instant download of an album track.

    The current leg of Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters' European tour concludes at the Colours of Ostrava festival in the Czech Republic this Saturday. For details on more of his upcoming tour dates, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    Rhiannon Giddens's new album, Freedom Highway, is due next Friday, February 24. But you don't need to wait till then to hear it: the album is streaming in full here as an NPR First Listen. It's a "rich collection, the latest chapter in the 40-year-old master folklorist, banjo virtuoso and vocal powerhouse's epic retelling of our history with its sins and sorrows—and joy born of resilience—fully reinstated," says NPR.
