Robert Plant re-covers 'Siren" with famous Tenor


Former Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant has collaborated with British tenor Alfie Boe, best known for his portrayal of Jean Valjean in Les Misérables.

The pair have recorded a cover of Tim Buckley’s Song to the Siren, which will surface on Boe’s new album Alfie, to be released on October 31. Plant had previously recorded the song on his 2002 solo album Dreamland.
