Robert Plant has released an animated video to accompany his new track Bluebirds Over The Mountain.
It’s been lifted from the former Led Zeppelin vocalist’s upcoming studio album Carry Fire, which will arrive on October 13 via Nonesuch/Warner.
Plant previously announced a 14-date UK tour for November and December – and he’s now revealed plans for a run of live shows across North America which will take place in February and March 2018.
Speaking about the follow-up to 2014’s Lullaby And… The Ceaseless Roar Plant said: “It’s about intention. I respect and relish my past works, but each time I feel the 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.”
