Plant disc coming in September

Monday, June 14, 2010 – Robert Plant is back with Band of Joy, his first album since 2007's "Raising Sand" with Alison Krauss (Rounder). Band of Joy was recorded in Nashville and will be out Sept. 14.

Plant and guitarist Buddy Miller co-produced the disc. "Buddy's integral to this album, you can hear his taste all over the instrumentation," said Plant. "Buddy's zone is beautiful, with a lot of reflections going back into mid-Fifties rockabilly, the singing fishermen and all the great country stuff, along with the soul and R&B from Memphis."

The band was comprised of multi-instrumentalist Darrell Scott, who provides the mandolin, guitar, accordion, pedal, lap steel and banjo lines, singer-songwriter Patty Griffin who adds the main vocals to Plant's lead parts, while Byron House plays bass and percussion comes from Marco Giovino.

Opening with their take on Los Lobos's Angel Dance, the disc also includes Low's Silver Rider and Moneky, the Fifties-style country-gospel harmonies on The Kelly Brothers' Sixties soul classic Falling In Love Again', the banjo-driven interpretation of Satan, Your Kingdom Must Come Down and the English/Appalachian folk ballad Cindy I'll Marry You Some Day.
