Pre-sale of the week is Carry Fire by Robert Plant, out on 13 October.
Carry Fire is Robert Plant’s eleventh solo album and first full-length release since 2014’s acclaimed lullaby and…The Ceaseless Roar. The album was produced by Robert at Top Cat Studio in Box, Wiltshire with additional recordings at Real World and Rockfield studios. Once again Robert is accompanied by The Sensational Space Shifters and joined by a number of special guests: Chrissie Hynde joins Robert on the duet ‘Bluebirds Over The Mountain’ (written by rockabilly legend Ersel Hickey and previously recorded by both Richie Valens and The Beach Boys); Albanian cellist Redi Hasa performs on three tracks, as does Seth Lakeman on viola and fiddle.
Robert Plant and the band spent two years on the road together supporting lullaby and…The Ceaseless Roar, their unique sound and vision ultimately evolving into something even more creative and powerful. Carry Fire melds unusual rhythms with naturalism and smouldering power. “It’s about intention, I respect and relish my past works but each time I feel the trawl and incentive to create new work. I must mix old with new. Consequently, the whole impetus of the band has moved on its axis somewhat, the new sound and different space giving way to exciting and dramatic landscapes of mood, melody and instrumentation.”
