Robert Plant will release “Band of Joy” on Sept. 14. The set is Plant’s interpretation of a number of tunes ranging from Los Lobos’ Angel Dance to English/Appalachian folk ballad “Cindy I’ll Marry You Some Day.”

He’s backed by guitarist Buddy Miller, with whom Plant produced the set, multi-instrumentalist Darrell Scott, singer/songwriter Patty Griffin and bassist Byron House.

As we previously reported, Plant will take this outfit on the road starting July 13. This marks his first album since the Grammy-winning “Raising Sand,” his collaboration with Alison Krauss. A follow-up to that album was shelved.
