Robert Plant and Strange Sensation are pleased to confirm that they have signed a major record deal with Sanctuary Records and their eagerly anticipated new album, Mighty Rearranger, will be released May 3, 2005.

"Myself and the band have received great encouragement from Sanctuary Records. We have made a very committed and powerful record and feel that Sanctuary's representation can be a great help to us in pushing these songs out into the great big music machine." Robert Plant

Mighty Rearranger finds Robert working again with his band 'Strange Sensation' who were so vital to his 2002 critically acclaimed and Grammy nominated Dreamland album. The new album follows his definitive solo retrospective, Anthology released in 2003 on Mercury Records and is an electrifying tour de force.

Sanctuary Group Chief Executive Officer Merck Mercuriadis commented, "It is a dream come true to have Robert on the label. Music fans know him as one of the greatest front men and rock icons of all time but Mighty Rearranger proves that not only is he one of the greatest artists of all time but that The Strange Sensation are a vital new band."

Joe Cokell, CEO Sanctuary Recorded Music Worldwide: "Robert has made a fabulous record that has excited everyone within the company and our belief is the album will be a worldwide success by the summer."

Robert Plant is the keynote speaker at this year's South By Southwest and will also perform at the event. A world tour begins with the Tsunami Benefit gig at Bristol Academy on February 19th and 20th (along with Portishead, Massive Attack and other acts) and continues until next February.
