Former Led Zeppelin frontman and current Sensational Space Shifters leader Robert Plant has announced a new podcast, Digging Deep, The Robert Plant Podcast. The podcast is set to debut on Monday, June 3rd via all of the major streaming platforms including iTunes, Spotify, Acast, YouTube, and more.
In an intro audio clip shared via his social media accounts, Plant explains,
Making records is a very personal experience. I was so ready to get away from that environment, then I was saying, lets get out of here. But then, now and again down the line, opening up some of the songs and looking back at ’em, I marvel at some of it.
Mostly wherever I am even now all these years later, I really wanna be there. I’m going to be picking out some songs from here and there along the way, mixing constant shifts and sound and intention. Men and women who encouraged and enlightened the themes and the stories.
A voice narration goes on to describe the show as, “the moments, people and places that have inspired some of his most treasured music.”
