Robert Plant contributing to the new Primal Scream record
Robert Plant is contributing vocals for the forthcoming Primal Scream album, according to the Led Zeppelin frontman confirmed in the latest issue of Mojo. Plant also collaborated with the Scottish band on its 2002 album Evil Heat, where he played harmonica on "The Lord Is My Shotgun."
Plant tells Mojo, "I sang a bit on the Primals stuff because I think their references on looking back on the glorious past and the way they bring them into the contemporary world are fantastic." Primal Scream's Bobby Gillespie also chimed in, comparing the band's new David Holmes-produced album to its 2000 release XTRMNTR. He added that the album will also feature Mark Stewart of The Pop Group.
Primal Scream have not announced a formal release date for its as-yet-untitled tenth studio album, which will be the follow-up to 2008's Beautiful Future. However, it is set to hit stores in early 2013.
