“Band of Joy”, the new album from Robert Plant and BAND OF JOY — a new version of his pre-LED ZEPPELIN group which also featured the late John Bonham — sold 49,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 5 on The Billboard 200 chart.
Plant’s first release since recording the six-time Grammy-winning bluegrass album “Raising Sand” with collaborator Alison Krauss in 2007, the “Band of Joy” CD enlists the help of an array of U.S. musicians, all of whom are performing with Plant on tour.
Plant previewed the album at a low-key gig in New York earlier in the summer, and amongst the 12 tracks are covers of a rare TOWNES VAN ZANDT track “Harm’s Swift Way”, as well as two tracks — “Silver Rider” and “Monkey” — from indie band LOW, both from their 2005 album “The Great Destroyer”.
The new lineup of BAND OF JOY includes: Patty Griffin on vocals; Darrell Scott on multiple instruments and vocals; Byron House on bass and vocals; Marco Giovino on drums, percussion and vocals; and co-producer Buddy Miller on guitar and vocals.
