Robert Plant Gets His "Big Voice" Back For New Album
He has a new Sensational Space Shifters record on the wayIn a new interview with the Telegraph Plant revealed that he was ditching his recent "country" vocal style, which he employed on the Band Of Joy and Alison Krauss.
"That was the great thing about the adventures with Alison, and singing with Patty and Buddy, that I started singing differently. Somebody said to me in London when we played the Forum recently, ‘You had your big voice back.’ I put the big voice away for quite a long time because I thought, we know how to do that,” he said, "So it was good to get it out again. It’s all the same really, you just have to use the right colors for the right picture.”
There's no word on when the new album will be released but it will contain, according to Plant, "12 tracks, 11 originals and no sentimental stuff”.
Plant recently released his London Forum show as a download only live album entitled, snappily, 7/12/12 HMV Forum, London, GB (more info here)
