Robert Plant confirms album work and US tour
11 Southern state dates lined up as Led Zep hero and The Sensational Space Shifters begin writing
Robert Plant has confirmed he's working on a new record with his band The Sensational Space Shifters.
As he confirmed an 11-date US spring tour, Plant added that he's at work on the follow-up to 2014's Lullaby And...The Ceaseless Roar.
He says: “Our recent travels have taken this wild whirlwind of a band though many incredible and inspiring places. Having just begun work on our new album, we thought we’d take time out to raise a little sand and welcome springtime with one more adventure, another celebration of life and song.”
The tour sees Plant and co play in Southern states Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas.
In December, Plant recorded a version of Elbow's The Blanket Of Night in aid of the British Red Cross.
