Robert Plant discusses Led Zeppelin IV classic on Digging Deep podcast

Robert Plant shares his thoughts on the “Led Zeppelin IV” classic, “The Battle Of Evermore”, on the latest episode of the rocker’s podcast series Digging Deep.

The 1971 tune features mandolin by Jimmy Page and a duet between Plant and Sandy Denny of the British folk rock group Fairport Convention.

“Led Zeppelin IV” – which featured instant classics like “Black Dog”, “Rock And Roll”, “Misty Mountain Hop” and “Stairway To Heaven” – topped the UK charts and peaked at No. 2 on the US Billboard 200 before going to become the band’s best-selling record in the States at 23 million copies.

Plant will conclude season two of Digging Deep with the release of a very special limited-edition seven-inch singles box set of the same name on December 13.

The package will include 16 A-sides and rare B-sides as featured in the first two seasons of the online series, with material spanning three decades of Plant’s extensive solo career.

The eight-disc collection also features restored artwork from the original seven-inch releases, packaged in a bespoke hardback book.

Plant’s most recent studio release is 2017’s “Carry Fire.”
