Listen To ROBERT PLANT And CHRISSIE HYNDE Duet On Cover Of 'Bluebirds Over The Mountain'

"Bluebirds Over The Mountain", a brand new song from Robert Plant, can be streamed below. The track, which features a guest appearance by PRETENDERS singer Chrissie Hynde, is taken from the LED ZEPPELIN frontman's eleventh solo album, "Carry Fire", which will be released on October 13 via Nonesuch/Warner.

The follow-up to 2014's "Lullaby And… The Ceaseless Roar" was produced by Plant in the west of England and Wales, at Top Cat studio in Box, Wiltshire with additional recordings at Real World and Rockfield studios. As with "Lullaby", Plant is accompanied by his backing band THE SENSATIONAL SHAPE SHIFTERS: John Baggott on keyboards, moog, loops, percussion, drums, brass arrangement, t'bal, snare drum, slide guitar, piano, electric piano, bendir; Justin Adams on guitar, acoustic guitar, oud, E-bow quartet, percussion, snare drum, tambourine; Dave Smith on bendir, tambourine, djembe, drum kit; and Liam "Skin" Tyson on dobro, guitar, acoustic guitar, pedal steel, twelve-string.

Plant and the SPACE SHIFTERS are also joined on "Carry Fire" by a number of special guests. Hynde joins Plant on the duet "Bluebirds Over The Mountain" (written by rockabilly legend Ersel Hickey and later recorded by both Richie Valens and THE BEACH BOYS). Albanian cellist Redi Hasa performs on three tracks, as does the celebrated Seth Lakeman on viola and fiddle.

Plant, who lived in Texas for a time before returning to his native England three years ago, together with his friends, present the songs on "Carry Fire", melding unusual rhythms with naturalism and smoldering power.

He says: "It's about intention. I respect and relish my past works, but each time I feel the incentive to create new work, I must mix old with new. 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."
