The former Led Zeppelin frontman drops a bombshell
Robert Plant has heavily hinted that his new solo album ‘Lullaby and… The Ceaseless Roar’ might be his last.
In an interview with The Independent to promote the album, the Led Zeppelin legend dropped a surprise bombshell saying: “And maybe this new album is the end now for me.”
When asked exactly what the album is “the end of”, Robert ambiguously continued: “Of this musical wanderlust and the wonderful carousel that I’ve been on.
“It’s like a kaleidoscope: you hold it up to the light, rotate it, and the pieces fall beautifully in different ways, but this record feels different.
“It’s a consummation of all those bits from Son House to Roni Size to the Gambia and it seems to have some sort of finality.”
Since Led Zeppelin’s breakup in 1980, Plant has released nine solo albums to date plus collaborative records with Jeff Beck, Alison Krauss and, of course, Jimmy Page.
‘Lullaby and... The Ceaseless Roar’, his tenth studio album, is released on Monday 8th September.
