New Release & Tour: Robert Plant – Carry Fire / The May Queen

Robert Plant’s new album, Carry Fire, will be released October 13th on Nonesuch/Warner Bros. Records. His eleventh solo album and first full-length release since 2014’s acclaimed Lullaby and…The Ceaseless Roar, was produced by Robert at Top Cat studio in Box, Wiltshire with additional recordings at Real World and Rockfield studios

And you can take a listen to Plant’s first release from the record, in the form of The May Queen

As with Lullaby and…The Ceaseless Roar, Robert is accompanied by The Sensational Space Shifters on the new record, as well as a host of guests, including Chrissie Hynde who joins Robert on the duet Bluebirds Over The Mountain (written by rockabilly legend Ersel Hickey and later recorded by both Richie Valens and The Beach Boys) and Albanian cellist Redi Hasa who performs on three tracks, as does the wonderful Seth Lakeman on viola and fiddle
