Rounder Records is pleased to announce that Robert Plant is back with Band of Joy, his first album since 2007’s six time Grammy ® Award winning Raising Sand (Rounder). Band of Joy was recorded in Nashville with a stellar cast of musicians and will be released on September 14.
A timeless plunge into authentic Americana, the album was co-produced by Plant and Nashville legend and guitarist Buddy Miller. “Buddy’s integral to this album, you can hear his taste all over the instrumentation,” enthuses Plant. “Buddy’s zone is beautiful, with a lot of reflections going back into mid-Fifties rockabilly, the singing fishermen and all the great country stuff, along with the soul and R&B from Memphis.”
