Update: LedZeppelinNews.com can report that Robert Plant’s 2010 solo album is tentatively called It’s Rude to Say No.
The first indications of what Robert Plant will do in 2010 have now been reported. Freelance writer Tom Netherland gets his scoop published in the Herald Courier, in a feature on one of the musicians reported to have played on recording sessions with Plant in Nashville just before Christmas.
“Look for Plant’s Buddy Miller-produced album later this year,” Netherland writes, nonchalantly dropping the first official confirmation published anywhere that the former Led Zeppelin singer was indeed working with Miller in Nashville shortly after Plant hand-wrote and signed the lyrics that fetched $2,225 for the Americana Music Association.
The musician profiled in Netherland’s piece, published Feb. 11, is singer-songwriter Darrell Scott, “who played such instruments as mandolin and glockenspiel” for the forthcoming Plant album. He is one of a few key players in a tight-knit band appearing on the record, Netherland reports.
While the other musicians comprising Plant’s new studio lineup have not been identified, Scott does provide a few insights from the sessions. One is the revelation that Plant was singing classic songs including “Cindy,” a traditional bluegrass number also recorded and performed under the title “Get Along Home, Cindy.”
In the article, Scott discusses his impressions of working with Plant in the studio. He tells Netherland:
“Those two-plus weeks were some of the most memorable times I’ve ever had in the studio. … The number-one thing is that Robert loves music. You think they’re posing and just getting through it, but I was humbled with how Robert Plant loved the music — old country, blues, rockabilly.”
