Robert Plant explains that he much prefers performing with his latest band, the Sensational Space Shifters, to playing hits from his past, in the new issue of Uncut.

Speaking in the new issue, out tomorrow (January 3), the former Led Zeppelin frontman also reveals that he has been recording a new album with his latest group.

“We’ve been all around the world, setting places on fire,” says Plant, “and it’s so much better to do that than to bathe in the tepid bathtub of old hits.

“We’ve been in the studio, though. We’ve got nine new tracks already.”

Plant features in our 2014 albums preview, which also features Beck, Elbow, Pete Townshend, David Byrne and Sharon Van Etten.

The new issue of Uncut, dated February 2014, is out on Friday (January 3).
