    Listen: Robert Plant's "Digging Deep" Podcast Digs Into "Carry Fire" Title Track

    The latest episode of Robert Plant's new podcast series, Digging Deep, digs deep into the title track from his latest album, Carry Fire, released on Nonesuch/Warner Records in 2017. You can listen to the episode and watch Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters perform "Carry Fire" live from the O2 Apollo Manchester in 2017 below.

    "The way that we've been constructing music for the last couple of albums with the Space Shifters, through Lullaby and the Ceaseless Roar and Carry Fire, has been pretty modular," Plant explains on the episode. "Each guy in our cooperative creates ideas and sends them to me or to each other and they go up to the misty mountains ... There's a lot of sketches, some of them are black-and-white, some of them are going into color and that's how all these songs are developed ... We've been pinning the donkey's tail with the blindfold on and see what happens."

    You can hear what else he had to say about creating "Carry Fire" here:

    And you can watch the live performance of the song here:

    Jeremy Denk’s Mozart Piano Concertos is now available on Nonesuch Records. Denk is joined by The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra for two Mozart concertos—No. 25 in C Major, K. 503 and No. 20 in D minor, K. 466—bookending the composer’s solo Rondo in A minor, K. 511. "Denk approaches everything with questing intelligence and energy," says the Observer. "His ornaments and cadenzas are full of wit and imagination, his ear for detail incisive and bracing. The excellent Saint Paul players match his variety and range of expression. As ever, Denk’s probing liner notes shed light, making an already engrossing album more than worth the purchase.”
