Robert Plant discusses career with CNN

Robert Plant returns with new music tomorrow, when his “Band Of Joy” disc sees its release.

Speaking with CNN’s Becky Anderson, Plant said his new album was not difficult to make at all. "Each record, if it involves different personalities, will take a different color and a different time," he said. "I think with this particular combination of players and singers, the results were very quick. It felt very fast and fluent. It was probably the easiest record I've made since I was a child."

The former Led Zeppelin front man says he owes his career in rock and roll music to a bit of good luck and even better timing: he got his appetite for rock music at the age of 13 and that it was all by "default."

"I was looking for a way out as I was a grammar school boy and doing three hours of homework a night and at that time it was 1961," Plant said. "You had Elvis telling us of another world. I don't know how much more expressive you can get than being a rock and roll singer."

Robert played a show in New York last night, and makes an appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon tonight.
