Robert Plant is launching a career retrospective podcast, Digging Deep, on June 3. The rock icon announced the news on Friday, explaining, “I’m going to be picking out some songs from here and there along the way, mixing constant shifts in sound and in tension.” In a one-minute teaser Plant describes going back and listening to some of the songs he’s recorded during his five-decade career and marveling at them, finding the players in the room to be, “out of sight… they found me to be something that they hadn’t been used to dealing with.”
The podcast promises to uncover the “moments, people and places that have inspired some of his most treasured music.” At press time it was not known how many episodes the pod will run.
The podcast announcement comes on the heels of news earlier this month that a Led Zeppelin “in their own words” documentary with new interviews from Plant, guitarist Jimmy Page and bassist John Paul Jones and directed by Bernard MacMahon (American Epic) is in the works. Plant is on the road this summer playing a series of festival dates and amphitheater shows in support of his 2017 Carry Fire album.
