    Watch: Robert Plant Talks "Carry Fire" with PBS NewsHour
    PBS NewsHour

    Robert Plant was featured on PBS NewsHour last night. He spoke with NewsHour's Jeffrey Brown about his new album, Carry Fire, his band the Sensational Space Shifters, 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 very good 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."

    You can see more of what he had to say in the NewsHour interview below.
