Robert Plant and the Space Shifters are also joined on ‘Carry Fire’ by a number of special guests. Chrissie Hynde joins Robert on the duet

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.




 
Robert, who lived in Texas for a time before returning to England three years ago, together with his friends, present the songs Carry Fire, melding unusual rhythms with naturalism and smouldering power.

 
“It’s about intention, I respect and relish my past works but each time I feel the lure 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”.
