Robert Plant joins social media, revamps website

Rock legend Robert Plant has finally joined social media. This week, Plant joined Twitter, Instagram and Google + as he launched a newly redesigned website featuring a new logo and an array of multimedia and archival material.

Plant launched a Twitter Q&A with fans on Thursday (Aug 8th). Fans were asked to submit questions using #AskRP on Wednesday (Aug 7th) and Plant answered the Top 10 questions on Thursday.

The first tweet Plant made himself is rather unique.

Plant gave his first 25,000 Twitter followers an exclusive free download of his current combo, Robert Plant Presents Sensational Space Shifters, performing the Led Zeppelin classic, “What Is And What Should Never Be,” live in concert from their 2012/2013 tour.

Plant’s only post on Instagram, as of press time, features a photo of he and his band taking a bow at the end of a concert. It’s accompanied by the text “Just crossed the Great Divide. Had an incredible time with the Space Shifters.”

The brand new redesign of RobertPlant.com features “a user-friendly new interface that allows fans to easily navigate the latest news about Plant’s album releases, tour dates, and much more.” The site also includes never-before-seen artifacts from Plant’s personal collection as well as troves of TV interviews, photographs, press clippings, set lists, tour laminates, posters, and music videos. There’s also in depth information on Plant’s discography and “gigography,” as the site describes.

One of the more notable items fans can expect to see on the website includes an exclusive docu-series, shot by Plant himself, chronicling his recent visit to Mali, set to premiere over ten weekly installments. No official date has been announced as to when this video series will premiere.
