From the announcement:

Before his recent projects in Nashville with Alison Krauss and Band of Joy, Plant worked alongside the very interesting force, “Strange Sensation,” recording the critically acclaimed, multi-Grammy nominated albums - Dreamland and Mighty Rearranger. From this platform, Sensational Space Shifters has developed. Now together these confederates and conspirators dig deeper and more intensely, always twisting and turning, bringing the past into a brilliant technicolor present.

The band is: Justin Adams - guitar, bendir, vocals John Baggott - keyboards Juldeh Camara - ritti (one stringed African violin), kologo (African Banjo), talking drum, vocals Billy Fuller - bass guitar, vocals Dave Smith - drums and percussion Liam “Skin” Tyson - guitar, vocals
