Robert Plant revealed he’ll be allowing his unheard music to be released after he dies. Ultimate Classic Rock reported that the Led Zeppelin frontman spoke about his archives during the premiere episode of the fourth season of his Digging Deep podcast, and explained that he had time to sort through things during the pandemic.
Plant said, “I started putting my house in order. All the adventures that I’ve ever had with music and tours, album releases, projects that didn’t actually get finished or whatever it is — I just put them, itemized them all, and put everything into some semblance of order. So I’ve completely changed the setup.”
We went on to say, “I’ve told the kids, when I kick the bucket, open it to the public free of charge — just to see how many silly things there were down the line from 1966 to now. It’s a journey.”
Robert Plant maintains that the only way to stay relevant to himself, let alone an audience, is to constantly be moving and growing artistically: “I like to dig deep with the people I’m around. Wherever I might in whatever circumstances; and that’s not just based on being a singer — that’s based on living a life. I mean, I’m pretty much of a, kind of a, a kind of strange firework, all the way though my life. I’m whizzing around and I don’t know which way I’m going to spring next. It really was quite a sobering revelation, really, to find that everything that I left behind was what I really cherish.”
Robert Plant will undertake a seven-date UK mini-tour next month with his latest solo band, Saving Grace.
