Robert Plant's new album, Lullaby And...The Ceaseless Roar will be released 5 September.

The album features 11 new recordings, nine of which are original songs written by Plant with his band, The Sensational Space Shifters.  The new-album line-up recently toured the world, including New Zealand, before recording Lullaby And...The Ceaseless Roar in the UK,

"It's really a celebratory record, powerful, gritty, African, Trance meets Zep," Plant says.

"The whole impetus of my life as a singer has to be driven by a good brotherhood. I am very lucky to work with The Sensational Space Shifters. They come from exciting areas of contemporary music...I have been around awhile and I ask myself, do I have anything to say? Is there a song still inside me? In my heart?

"I see life and what's happening to me. Along the trail there are expectations, disappointments, happiness, questions and strong relationships," Plant explains.

"....and now I'm able to express my feelings through melody, power and trance; together in a kaleidescope of sound, colour, and friendship"
