The title may or may not refer back to a line from Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven,” but this single from Robert Plant’s latest solo album sheds some light on why he’s so reluctant to reunite that band. “The May Queen” is an invocation to the Muse from an artist who has accepted his mortality. “Out here the fire’s still burning, so long into my night,” he declares, making clear that tending his fire means moving forward, not backwards, and mapping out new continents.
