Robert Plant is previewing his forthcoming anthology,Digging Deep, by releasing one of its three previously unreleased songs.
However, "Charlie Patton Highway (Turn It Up – Part 1),” is a new song that will also be included on his soon-to-be-released Band of Joy Volume 2 album.
Plant says, “I spent time in the hill country of north Mississippi around Como, dropping back to Clarksdale, the incredible center of Black music talent over the years. I weaved my car through the Delta back roads, listening to the remarkable protestations of Mississippi AM radio. I was looking at my world and my times from this unfamiliar place and found myself exposed to a nightmare world of half-truths.”
The song is available now at all digital service providers.
Digging Deep is a limited-edition collection with 30 songs spanning four decades. It will be out on October 2nd.
