Producer Gavin Monaghan’s Deleted Post About the Plant Session

LedZepNews reports that the session was overseen by producer Gavin Monaghan, a two-time Producer of the Year winner at the Birmingham Music Awards and owner of Magic Garden studio.

A now-deleted Instagram post from Monaghan appeared to reveal that Plant’s new project was connected with Wolves Records, a label launched in 2021 by the Wolverhampton Wanderers soccer club. Plant has been a vice president of the club since 2009.

“Absolute pleasure to be working with Robert Plant and Wolves Records at Magic Garden Recording Studio again,” the post read, according to LedZepNews. “And the thrill of a lifetime to be reimagining some classic cuts from Led Zeppelin.”

He is, hands down, the most grounded rock star I’ve ever met.”
