VIDEO: Robert Plant performs on The Colbert Report

Robert Plant was the featured guest on The Colbert Report on Thursday.

The Led Zeppelin singer joined host Stephen Colbert to discuss his new album, “lullaby and...The Ceaseless Roar.”

"My quest is a long one and it has no end. It's a wonderful thing to do and it's surrounded by great people. And I brought you a little present from our stock room," says Plant as he dips into his front shirt pocket and pulls out what looks like a joint. "I think it's one of the accessories of not quite being a knight in the British Empire, but on the way."

"What is that?” asks Colbert. “I'm not… let's find out what this is later, shall we? And for the purposes of my lawyer and the network, this is a cigarette."

Plant and The Sensational Space Shifters then played the album’s lead single, “Rainbow”, on the program and recorded a web-exclusive performance of “Little Maggie.”

The singer wrapped up an 8-date theatre tour of North America in New York on Thursday.

Plant will kick off a 13-date UK tour on November 9 in Newport.
