Robert Plant is at work on a new album, and he's revealed that it will contain "12 tracks, 11 originals and no sentimental stuff.”
Also, he's ditching the "country" vocal style he employed on his collaborations with Alison Krauss and Band of Joy.
He says, "That was the great thing about the adventures with Alison, and singing with Patty and Buddy, that I started singing differently. Somebody said to me in London when we played the Forum recently, ‘You had your big voice back.’ I put the big voice away for quite a long time because I thought; we know how to do that. So it was good to get it out again. It’s all the same really, you just have to use the right colors for the right picture.”
