    Robert Plant Signs with Nonesuch/Warner Bros. Records; Details of New Album with Sensational Space Shifters Band Coming Soon

    Legendary British singer/songwriter Robert Plant has signed with Nonesuch/Warner Bros. Records, which will release his label debut later this year. Further details about the album, which will feature the Sensational Space Shifters band, will be announced shortly, as will upcoming tour dates; for previously announced tour dates, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    Robert Plant made his first commercial recordings in 1966. In 1967, he formed a group called the Band of Joy with drummer John Bonham. Soon Bonham, Plant, guitarist Jimmy Page, and bassist John Paul Jones formed The New Yardbirds, which eventually became Led Zeppelin. The Led Zeppelin era ended in 1980, when Bonham died. Since that time, Plant has turned his wide-ranging musical talents toward solo albums as well as recordings with Jimmy Page and with bands like the Honeydrippers, Priory of Brion, Strange Sensation, and Band of Joy.

    Plant’s writing and performing reflects his infinite artistic and intellectual curiosity, fed by his global travels, with influences from West Coast psychedelic rock, roots blues, African music, and traditional American and European folk. His recent collaboration with Alison Krauss, Raising Sand, further expanded his horizons. Produced by T Bone Burnett, the album won six Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year and Record of the Year. His most recent release, Band of Joy, was co-produced by Buddy Miller and revived his 1967’s band’s name. It featured several stellar country/Americana musicians performing music from Low, Townes Van Zant, Richard Thompson, and others.

    Plant says of working with Nonesuch, “I’m pleased to find such a reputable home for our renegade departures. The support and encouragement we have received has been strong and refreshing – Turn It Up!”

    The new album will be released worldwide by Nonesuch/Warner Bros. Records.

This is great news....... When is the birth of this baby please?

obvious ploy to play base 4 the Black Keys! Sir Plant, u continue 2 amaze & mesmerize as an artist, bard, humanitarian, man & performer. I'm married but give 2 u ... All of my Love ! Keep on rockin' n the free world. We need your voice, your primal wail, your brutal honesty, your mysterious melodies. Thank you for your Great Work. Would enjoy very much 2 have a few black ' tans with u

No, not really, I hope it goes well for you, but there's more than enough brutal honesty here, so keep it to yourself, thank you.

it's great to see an origioanlly written work from Robert, this will be the first since mighty rearranger way back 9 years ago.

i hope it gives us musical smiles such as in the mood did along with big log, and other melodical songs.

Looking forward to it's release.

PS i am happy he refues to get back together with zeppelin, for the past is in the past and the present and futre hold the most promise and excitment

Anybody know if Justin Adams is back playing guitar?
