Robert Plant has teamed up with artists Shepard Fairey, Aaron Huey, and Ernesto Yerena for the new lyric video to "New World," a track from Robert's 2017 album Carry Fire. Watch it above on YouTube.
With heavy drums and Plant's calming vocals, the meditative track is supported with colorful visuals and lyrics. Robert shared a strong comment about the song and video on his Facebook page:
Every day our senses are assaulted by the ridiculous. It's not so long ago that today's plots and wrangles between nation governments would seem too far-fetched to inspire a Hollywood blockbuster. The perversions and struggles leave a shadow over the spirit of the people and the land. It's not an original sin. Every era bears the burden of chaos and warmongering. Time immemorial.
"New World" is a comment on a recent history of conquest and submission. How fitting that Shepard Fairey, Aaron Huey, and Ernesto Yerena complemented our music in such a way. They are artists of great conscience and sensitivity. I'm most grateful. I'm also pleased to add my support to HonorEarth.org.
