Led Zeppelin’s Robert Plant released the new single “Charlie Patton Highway (Turn it Up, Pt. 1).” It’s the first unreleased song of his ucoming anthology “Digging Deep: Subterranea”.
“I spent time in the hill country of north Mississippi around Como. Dropping back to Clarksdale, the incredible center of black music talent over the years. So I weaved my car through the Delta back roads. Listening to the remarkable protestations of Mississippi AM radio. I was looking at my world and my times from this unfamiliar place and found myself exposed to a nightmare world of half-truths,” Robert Plant said.
