The legendary frontman of Led Zeppelin, Robert Plant has shared the recent episode of his podcast, Digging Deep. In that episode, he has revealed an interesting facts about the iconic cover art of Led Zeppelin IV album.
As we all know, Led Zeppelin IV’s cover art was one of the most iconic cover arts of all time, because of there’s nothing about the band and album on it.
Robert Plant told some little-known facts about that cover art during a recent episode of his podcast on Youtube.
The host of the podcast, Matt Everett asked that:
“How you referred to the album (Led Zeppelin IV)?”
Robert has answered:
“I don’t know. In those days in Zeppelin, we were so much of a deal – in fact, it becomes almost like a kind of Spinal Tap thing where, sometime you can’t put the record out, even though you’ve finished it, because you haven’t got the artwork right.”
Matt asked the new album’s named:
“Are you going to put the name on that album?”
Robert said that:
“Are you kidding? Put the name of the band on the album cover? That’s far too corporate!’ … But of course, we want everybody to know that [it’s ours], to buy it, sell it, hate it, love it and all that.
So, yeah, I don’t know what it’s called. ‘The Four Symbols’ is sometimes what it’s called.”
