Robert Plant Releases New Video
Robert Plant has released a new video for the song, “New World.” The song is on Plant’s latest album with The Sensational Space Shifters, Carry Fire.
The clip, available on Fairey’s Obey Giant YouTube channel features images of Native Americans and the songs lyrics. The video also spotlights images created by Fairey and artist Ernesto Yerena many of which were inspired by the photos of Aaron Huey, “focusing on the impact of imperialism on Native Americans, the environment, and sacred natural resources.”
“Every day our senses are assaulted by the ridiculous. It’s not so long ago that today’s plots and wrangles between nation governments would seem too far-fetched to inspire a Hollywood blockbuster,” Plant said on Facebook. ” The perversions and struggles leave a shadow over the spirit of the people and the land.”
Proceeds from the song will be donated to Honor the Earth, a charity focused on creating awareness and support for Native American environmental issues and aid to sustain Native communities.
