Robert Plant teases new music

Robert Plant is teasing the forthcoming release of new music across his social media sites.

The Led Zeppelin rocker is streaming a short instrumental clip alongside the phrase, “A Way With Words”, which is also prominently featured on his Facebook and official website.

It’s unknown at this point what the title refers to – be it a lead single or an album – as Plant has been working with the Sensational Space Shifters on a project over the past year while fans await a follow-up to 2014’s “lullaby and... The Ceaseless Roar.”

That project debuted and peaked at No. 10 on the US Billboard 200 upon its release.

Plant’s social media sites previously displayed an earlier teaser that said, “Any Time Now.”

The singer and AC/DC’s Brian Johnson joined Paul Rodgers during a show in Oxford, UK in May to cover Barrett Strong’s 1959 classic, “Money (That’s What I Want)”, as part of Rodgers’ Free Spirit UK tour.

The three rockers took turns on lead vocals on the tune, with Plant adding some harmonica to the proceedings.

Plant also made headlines in March when he joined violinist Nigel Kennedy to perform the 1975 Led Zeppelin classic, “Kashmir”, for the first time without bandmate and guitarist Jimmy Page.

Billed as "Nigel Kennedy And Friends", the show at London’s Royal Albert Hall was part of a 12-day festival of classical music-themed events called Love Classical.
