The line-up for the album "lullaby and... The Ceaseless Roar" recently toured the world before recording the album at Helium Studios in Wiltshire and Real World Studios in Bath, UK. The track Rainbow was recorded in Contino Rooms in London. Tchad Blake mixed all but three tracks on the album.
Its 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 whats happening to me.
Along the trail there are expectations, disappointments, happiness, questions and strong relationships, Plant explains, ... and now Im able to express my feelings through melody, power and trance; together in a kaleidoscope of sound, colour, and friendship
