The 11-song LP sees Plant collaborating with The Pretenders’ Chrissie Hynde and singer Seth Lakeman.

“It’s about intention, I respect and relish my past works but each time I feel the lure and incentive to create new work. I must mix old with new,” Plant said of the new album in a statement. “Consequently the whole impetus of the band has moved on its axis somewhat, the new sound and different space giving way to exciting and dramatic landscapes of mood, melody and instrumentation.”
