Is Robert Plant Teasing His New Solo Album?
That message has also replaced his cover photos on Twitter and Facebook. Plant’s website began displaying an earlier teaser that said “Any Time Now” months ago. Where a blank, black page once greeted fans, his site now displays A Way With Words while playing a rootsy instrumental excerpt on a loop.

These cryptic messages previously spawned rumors of a Led Zeppelin reunion – something for which fans have remained hopeful, despite the fact that the band has only performed together on three occasions since their split in 1980: At Live Aid in 1985, three years later at the Atlantic Records 40th Anniversary concert and at the 2007 Celebration Day concert. More recently, Plant reportedly turned down a $14 million payout to perform with surviving bandmates Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones at the Desert Trip festival.
His last album, Lullaby and the Ceaseless Roar, dates to 2014. That was Plant’s initial studio effort with the Sensational Space Shifters; they also collaborated on a live project together back in 2012.
Plant earlier confirmed their return for this follow up album, just before a series of spring dates. Sessions were reportedly held in Llanuwchllyn, Wales; Peter Gabriel‘s Real World Studios in Wiltshire, England; and possibly at New York’s Electric Lady Studios.
