Robert Plant to Release Live EP for Record Store Day 2015
Robert Plant has joined the growing list of artists releasing special limited-edition vinyl titles for Record Store Day 2015.
Plant's contribution, titled More Roar, is a 10" EP that collects three performances from his world tour with the Sensational Space Shifters in support of 2014's lullaby ... and the Ceaseless Roar album. Limited to 10,000 copies, it includes live versions of Ceaseless Roar tracks "Turn It Up" and "Arbaden" on Side A, with a medley of "Poor Howard" and "Whole Lotta Love" on Side B.
The release of More Roar comes several months after Plant expressed a desire to work with vinyl enthusiast and Record Store Day hero Jack White. Saying he's intrigued by White's use of the Voice-O-Graph, the restored instant vinyl apparatus White used to cut the "world's fastest record" last year and brought onto The Tonight Show for a Neil Young live recording, Plant applauded White's "buccaneer spirit, and the way he dodges through the musical horizons."
One of many Record Store Day 2015 releases from the Warner Bros. label family, More Roar will be available at participating outlets on April 18. For more information about the event and local shops near you, visit the official Record Store Day site.
Plant joins an Record Store Day 2015 classic-rock contingent that also includes Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl — who, as previously reported, has been named this year's official ambassador. The Foos will be releasing their own four-track EP, Songs From the Laundry Room, which collects previously unreleased demos, covers and songs.
