Robert Plant - Friday 6 October
6 Music Live returns for 2017 with Lauren Laverne introducing a week of live performances from the BBC's iconic Maida Vale studios, featuring Morrissey, Mogwai, alt-J, Loyle Carner and Robert Plant.
Robert Plant and his Sensational Space Shifters will be performing songs from their new album ‘Carry Fire’ for the first time, alongside some of his classic tracks. This, his 11th album, is due for release the week after his 6 Music Live performance, and is his first full length release since 2014’s acclaimed ‘lullaby and…The Ceaseless Roar’.
Multiple Grammy Award winner; Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee; and, in a 2011 Rolling Stone poll, named by readers as the top rock vocalist of all time.
Robert Plant is best known for his work with rock heavyweights Led Zeppelin, who delivered a series of era-defining albums in the 1970s, as well as classic tracks such as 'Stairway to Heaven', 'Whole Lotta Love' and 'Kashmir'. He's since gone on to forge a successful solo career, releasing ten albums to date.
"It’s about intention," says Plant of his latter-day career and his current work. "I rejoice in my previous work but must continue the journey to new worlds, after all there are so many songs that are yet to be written."\
The sessions will take place during Lauren's 6 Music show, at midday from Monday 2 to Friday 6 October 2017. And you could be in our audience. For full details of how to register, and to read all the terms and conditions, please follow the link below:
