Former Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant has unveiled the clip for the first single ‘Rainbow’ from his acclaimed, 10th solo album lullaby and … The Ceaseless Roar.
Steering well away from his rocker frontman days, the new song sees Plant combining two of his great passions – the country and blues of southern America and African music – into one seamless record.
The clip is a slo-mo dreamlike montage of CGI stars, equations and maps; a philosophical exploration complemented by Plant’s cooing, sing-song vocals.
There’s a nostalgic-tinged cutesy touch, with a cascading stream of Sweethearts candy and neon proclamations of love. Plant himself features briefly throughout on a sepia, vintage TV screen.
