Robert Plant is a singular vocal talent, the type whose voice inspires awe and wonder at just how he’s able to sing like that. It was his calling card for years with Led Zeppelin, his presence (pun intended) at the forefront of the English band’s unmistakable sound.

Plant’s creative innovation moved far beyond the Zeppelin days with a prolific solo career that exists to this day — and today, he releases Digging Deep: Subterranea, a 2-CD collection that includes three previously unreleased songs.

Plant previewed the release in recent weeks with “Charlie Patton Highway (Turn It Up. Pt. 1)”:

Digging Deep: Subterranea features 30 songs spanning various projects and four decades, touching on each of his 11 solo albums and beyond.  The musical journey takes listeners through Plant’s unpredictable career, and along the way will feature guest appearances from Jimmy Page, Buddy Miller, Patty Griffin, Phil Collins, Nigel Kennedy, Richard Thompson and Strange Sensation/ The Sensational Space Shifters.

It should come as no surprise to those aware of Plant’s career trajectory to consider that this doesn’t have much at all to do with his musical output with Led Zeppelin. In 2018, Plant spoke with Rock Cellar’s Jeff Slate about his album Carry Fire (click here to pick up a copy), and explained why he isn’t seeking “success” in the vein of selling millions of records anymore:

“It’s okay on the way up to think that’s all it’s all about, but when you’ve been there and you know how shatteringly insular everything becomes, then your relationship with this carnival we have becomes priceless. To try and make it something to fit in with a symbol of success just for the hell of it, I don’t think that’s really where I’m at this time in my life.”
