A new trailer for Robert Plant 's forthcoming solo album, Lullaby and…The Ceaseless Roar , has premiered on the Led Zeppelin singer's official YouTube channel .  The three-minute film, titled Return to the Borders , shows scenes of the lush, green English countryside interspersed with interviews with Plant and a few of the members of his current band, Sensational Space Shifters .

In the video, Robert praises multi-instrumentalist John Baggott 's contributions in creating atmospheric sonic flavors for the album's tracks.

"Johnny Baggott was bringing so many loops and amazing samples to the program every night," says the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer.  He adds, "We could create monster sounds, beautiful and panoramic, which, as we started to write the record, it gave me an amazing panorama for a place to put a good vocal performance and a good story."

Baggott, meanwhile, explains, "[I made] these kind of psychedelic…drum loops and different psychedelic electronic loops, reverse kind of things, and just presented them as sort of demos.  And it kind of started there for me."

Sensational Space Shifters guitarists Justin Adams and Liam "Skin" Tyson also appear in the trailer, briefly discussing how well the band members collaborate together.  The video also features segments of two songs from Lullaby and…The Ceaseless Roar -- "Little Maggie" and "Arbaden (Maggie's Babby)."

Lullaby and…The Ceaseless Roar will be released on September 9.  Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters will kick off a U.S. tour in support of the album on September 25 in Port Chester, New York.
