Robert Plant has released a second song, "Bones of Saints," in advance of the release of his upcoming solo album, Carry Fire.
In the song, the singer continues the bold, genre-defying direction that has characterized much of his post-Led Zeppelin career.
Plant says he and his band, the Sensational Shape Shifters, drew material from the new album from the environment around which they wrote and recorded, next door to Peter Gabriel's Real World Studios in Wiltshire, England.
"It's a real hive of industry there," Plant tells Michael Hill. "Working alongside the main studios, we'd encounter many artists from around the world. It's an inspiring atmosphere. You meet Welsh singers, African players from Niger, and American bluegrass goddesses passing through. It's a creative place."
Carry Fire is Plant's 11th studio album. It will be available everywhere October 13.
