Robert Plant on keeping up the adventure, post-Zeppelin

Former Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant on Lullaby and ...The Ceaseless Roar.

Former Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant joins Jian to talk about his new solo record, Lullaby and ...The Ceaseless Roar. The album is a continuation of his penchant for musical experimentation and a return to his rock roots, with a decidedly global music flair.

"There's a marriage here that's made with brimstone and with energy and with humour and [with] nothing sanctimonious about it at all," he says of his first collection of original songs in almost a decade.

"I would describe it as a bunch of guys who all play, come from different places, but are good friends and know when to shut up."
