Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters have released a second single from their upcoming album, lullaby and... The Ceaseless Roar. Listening to song previews last month, I noted Pocketful of Golden is "is a ballad, very much in the pulled back Band of Joy style that we have heard from Plant the past few efforts." This is true, as far as it goes, but that is not to suggest the song is boring and, in fact, is quite a lovely song with Juldeh Camara's riti adding flavour throughout.
If you have purchased the album through Robert Plant's website, you were sent a link with the download to Pocketful of Golden yesterday. It is also now available on iTunes, although the Amazon link for Pocketful of Golden is still listing it as a pre-order.
Plant's new album will be available on September 9th. The first single, Rainbow, was released on June 24th.
