Robert Plant and Strange Sensation has signed with Sanctuary Records with their new album, Mighty Rearranger, to be released May 3. “Myself and the band have received great encouragement from Sanctuary Records," said Plant. "We have made a very committed and powerful record and feel that Sanctuary's representation can be a great help to us in pushing these songs out into the great big music machine.”
Sanctuary Group Chief Executive Officer Merck Mercuriadis commented, "It is a dream come true to have Robert on the label," said Sanctuary Group Chief Executive Officer Merck Mercuriadis. "Music fans know him as one of the greatest front men and rock icons of all time, but Mighty Rearranger proves that not only is he one of the greatest artists of all time but that The Strange Sensation are a vital new band."
Joe Cokell, CEO Sanctuary Recorded Music Worldwide added, “Robert has made a fabulous record that has excited everyone within the company and our belief is the album will be a worldwide success by the summer."
Plant is the keynote speaker at this year’s South By Southwest and will also perform at the event. A world tour begins with the tsunami benefit gig at Bristol Academy on February 19-20 (along with Portishead, Massive Attack and other acts) and continues until next February. –Bob Grossweiner and Jane Cohen
