Robert Plant recruited Buddy Miller to co-produce his forthcoming album (he also provides vocals and guitar), the album also includes Patty Griffin, Darrell Scott, Byron House and Marco Giovino and they go on tour together this month under the moniker Robert Plant and the Band of Joy.

A recent press release stated "A timeless plunge into authentic Americana, the album was co-produced by Plant and Nashville legend and guitarist Buddy Miller. “Buddy’s integral to this album, you can hear his taste all over the instrumentation,” enthuses Plant. “Buddy’s zone is beautiful, with a lot of reflections going back into mid-Fifties rockabilly, the singing fishermen and all the great country stuff, along with the soul and R&B from Memphis.”

The album is due for release on September 14th.
