Led Zeppelin wailer-in-chief Robert Plant continues his run of recent solo records with the release of Carry Fire, his eleventh, on Oct. 13. Previously, we heard “The May Queen,” a rhythmic blues-folk song built on acoustic guitar and hand percussion, and today (Sept. 1), he and his band the Sensational Space Shifters have released another tune called “Bones of Saints.”

The more traditionally rocking tune’s lyrics seem to nod at the current political situation, with lines about guns, fences and fires in the sky over a shuffling rockabilly beat and Plant’s signature plaintive wail.
