Currently topping the bill at headline shows and summer festivals across Europe, Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters have earned ecstatic critical acclaim at every stop of the Carry Fire tour thus far.
Plant has also just unveiled a new companion video for one of Carry Fire‘s undisputed highlights, “New World.” Directed by renowned artist/activist Shepard Fairey, “New World” is streaming now via www.robertplant.com.
Carry Fire is available now via Nonesuch/Warner Bros. Records at all digital music retailers and streaming services, as well as via robertplant.com. Rolling Stone named the album among the “50 Best Albums of 2017,” writing, “With a title that evokes primal discovery and heroic burden, Carry Fire finds Plant nuancing the mystic stomp of yore for darkening times… It proves that Plant’s athletic power, like his musical idealism, burns undiminished.”
