Robert Plant has released his new album Carry Fire. The LP features 11 songs covering 49 minutes. The result is a worldly collection of music with diverse instruments and influences that demonstrates Plant and his band's ability to play a wide array of genres.

As with his 2014 release, lullaby and...The Ceaseless Roar, Robert once again enlisted the help of the Sensational Space Shifters as his backing ensemble, which is composed of Justin Adams, Liam Tyson, John Baggott, Juldeh Camara, Billy Fuller, Dave Smith, Redi Hasa, and Seth Lakeman.

Tracks like "Season's Song," "Dance With You Tonight," and "A Way With Words" portray a gentler Plant with a soft vocal delivery, which allows the group to play with space and set the overall calming mood. The LP's title track institutes a spacey Middle Eastern vibe, and traces of the Led Zeppelin sound can be heard in "New World..." "Bluebirds Over the Mountains," featuring Chrissie Hynde from The Pretenders on vocals, employs a meditative beat underneath distorted guitar notes and rootsy strings. 

With the release of Carry Fire, Robert Plant is further establishing his successful solo career. With Plant's touring schedule extending until March 2018, Led Zeppelin fans should not hold their breath for a reunion anytime soon.

Songs we like are "Seasons Song," "The May Queen," "Bones of Saints," "Bluebirds Over the Mountains," 

Carry Fire is currently available on Amazon. You can also stream the full LP above, via Spotify. For concert tickets and more, check out Robert Plant's Zumic artist page.
