As the lead singer of legendary rock band Led Zeppelin for 12 years, and an award-winning solo artist for nearly three decades, you might say that Mr Plant, knows the odd thing about good music. Here he explains why the tracks below are on his playlist right now
Early Spring Till
"Empty, fragmented and poignant."
Lines in the Sand
"Great new band from Nashville. I saw them perform this live on UK TV last year. Inspired vocal."
Link Wray and His Ray Men
"Mean and nasty. A window on a lost world... bring it back."
The Low Anthem
"A beautiful theme. Wonderfully oblique."
Home in Your Heart
"A song with amazing groove and spirit from a guy who never lost the ticket. One of the proudest moments of my early career was opening the show for him, the King of Rock and Soul."
Mr Plant's new studio album, Band of Joy, is out now. www.Robertplant.com
