Robert Plant said he has no plans to release any of his archived music until after his death. The 72-year-old Led Zeppelin legend revealed to Matt Everitt on the latest episode of Plant’s Digging Deep podcast that he “itemized” his archive during lockdown and it contains a wide range of recordings from abandoned projects, along with personal paperwork.
Plant said that arranging his archive was a case of “putting my house in order. … All the adventures I’ve ever had with music, tours, album releases, projects that didn’t actually get finished or whatever it is, I just put them, itemized them all and put everything into some semblance of order. … I told the kids that when I kick the bucket, open it to the public – free of charge – just to see how many silly things there were down the line from 1966 to now: the journey.” He added: “I don’t care what happens to it, it’s just great to hear it again.” When Everitt said, “One day … ,” Plant replied: “I don’t know whether there’s a ‘one day’ around the corner, to be honest!”
