Robert Plant & the Sensational Space Shifters continue to build anticipation for their upcoming summer tour of North America. The ex-Led Zeppelin frontman and company have released an official live video for “The May Queen,” which is the debut single from Plant's latest solo album Carry Fire.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer debuted the live clip on April 30 via YouTube ahead of the launch of his second North American tour leg, which kicks off June 8 in Atlanta at State Bank Amphitheater At Chastain Park. “The May Queen” is the fourth official live video to surface from the new album along with “New World,” “Season's Song” and the title track.
The clip was directed by Ryan Mackfall and filmed during a performance on Nov. 30, 2017 in Manchester, U.K., at O2 Apollo Manchester. The Sensational Space Shifters lay down a joyous acoustic groove as the Grammy winner sings, “Lay down in sweet surrender/Your love so warm and tender/Oh, sweet surrender now.”
Carry Fire is available here in CD, digital and vinyl formats. Fans can check out the live video performance of “The May Queen” above.
