Robert Plant Wrote Album Worth of Material With Band Of Joy's Miller

(hennemusic) Band Of Joy guitarist and producer Buddy Miller tells Rolling Stone that Robert Plant visited his home studio in Nashville last year for a casual joint songwriting session that proved fertile, yielding an inspired batch of songs that the pair quickly recorded with BOJ drummer Marco Giovino.

"We didn't mean to, but we sort of wrote a record's worth [of material] and I said, 'While we're doing this, why don't I put up some mics and document it,' because that's better than just trying to remember it or record it on your phone," explains Miller. "And it sounded so good I think we, you know, accidentally made a record."

It's not finished yet, and there's no indication whether Plant will actually release it when it is, so Miller chooses his words carefully. "I don't know how much [Robert] would want me talkin' about it," he says, though he does allow that the songs they recorded would make for a raw counterpart to Plant's 2010 "Band Of Joy" album. "If the last record might be pastoral, parts of it, [this one's] much more tribal; it's much more urgent and tribal and, dare I say, rockin'!" more on this story
