In a new interview with the U.K. newspaper The Daily Telegraph, Robert Plant has revealed that he is ditching his recent "country" vocal style, which he employed on recent Band Of Joy And Alison Krauss collaborations.
Plant says: "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. 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."
Plant's next album is underway. It will under the name Sensational Space Shifters. No songs are yet named. But Plant does say there will be "12 tracks, 11 originals and no sentimental stuff."
Thanks to Gibson for the report.
