Robert Plant streams The May Queen from new album Carry Fire

Robert Plant is streaming a lyric video for “The May Queen”, the lead track from his newly-announced forthcoming album “Carry Fire.”

Due October 13 and produced by Plant, the set sees the rocker once again joined by the Sensational Space Shifters, with appearances by Albanian cellist Redi Hasa, and renowned viola and fiddle player Seth Lakeman.

The Led Zeppelin legend is also joined by Pretenders singer Chrissie Hynde for a duet on the Ersel Hickey rockabilly classic, "Bluebirds Over the Mountain."

“It’s about intention, I respect and relish my past works but each time I feel the lure and incentive to create new work. I must mix old with new,” says Plant. “Consequently the whole impetus of the band has moved on its axis somewhat, the new sound and different space giving way to exciting and dramatic landscapes of mood, melody and instrumentation.”

A full track list for "Carry Fire" can be found below.

Plant’s eleventh solo album marks the follow-up to 2014’s “lullaby and...The Ceaseless Roar”, which debuted and peaked at No. 10 on the US Billboard 200 upon its release.

The singer will launch “Carry Fire” with a tour of the UK and Ireland in November.
