Robert Plant launches season 3 of Digging Deep podcast

Robert Plant has launched the third season of his podcast series, “Digging Deep.”

In the first episode of the new run - recorded live at London's Rough Trade East – the singer discusses “Morning Dew” from his 2002 album, “Dreamland”, a track that could be described as ‘a post-apocalyptic psych-folk classic’ with an incredible history.

The track was written by Canadian folk singer Bonnie Dobson, who released a live version of the track in 1962 before recording a studio version in 1969.

“So, I always wanted to sing this song, and I did so many times, anyway” explains Plant. “When it was time to record it with Strange Sensation, it was on our first adventure … and most of the album were covers, anyway. It was just something I always wanted to do.”

The podcast series returns in sync with news that Plant will release a new anthology, “Digging Deep: Subterranea”, on October 2.

The limited edition 2CD set presents 30 songs from the rocker’s extensive solo career – from his 1982 debut, “Pictures At Eleven”, to his eleventh and latest effort, 2017’s “Carry Fire.”

The package includes three previously unreleased tracks: "Nothing Takes The Place Of You," "Charlie Patton Highway (Turn It Up - Part 1)" – from the forthcoming “Band Of Joy Volume 2” album – and a cover of rockabilly artist Charlie Feathers’ 1957 tune, "Too Much Alike”, featuring Patty Griffin.
