Bjork to Join Led Zeppelin

Proving she does indeed possess a sense of humour (contrary to what Airport Security may believe), Icelandic songstress Bjork has announced that she will replace Robert Plant as the new lead singer of Led Zeppelin and start touring in June.

A post on her website reads: Björk has accepted the position of lead vocalist for legendary Led Zeppelin, but it was evident that their world tour was in turmoil after original singer Robert Plant decided to concentrate on live work with Allison Krauss. They have been looking for new singer to tour and record with as reported in the media.

Björk has though put forward her wish that they only cover with her songs from album I and IV, among them pure classics like:

“Good Times Bad Times”, “You Shook Me”, “Dazed and Confused”, “Your Time Is Gonna Come”, “Black Mountain Side”, “Communication Breakdown”, “I Can’t Quit You Baby”, “Black Dog” , “Rock and Roll”, “The Battle of Evermore” and “Stairway to Heaven”.

The tour kicks off in June after Björk has fulfilled her other engagements. For further details of the tour and tickets are here.
