Robert Plant fans first met the former Led Zeppelin singer's new backing band, the Sensational Space Shifters, on 2012's Live in London LP. Two years later, the group is preparing to release Lullaby and… the Ceaseless Roar, a studio debut that their leader provocatively describes as "a celebratory record, powerful, gritty, African, trance meets Zep." Produced by Plant himself, Lullaby contains 11 songs – nine of which are original – played on instruments ranging from banjo and guitar to synthesizer and djembe.
Here, watch the group play the album's lead single, "Rainbow," in an exclusive live clip. Asked to describe the performance, Plant writes, "On fire with this new chapter... power and melody... so much newness... cascades through the past..."
Following Lullaby's September 9th release, the band will be playing a handful of North American shows. See below for the full list, and visit Plant's website to pre-order the LP.
