Courtesy of Scott Newton/KLRULed Zeppelin‘s Robert Plant and his current band, The Sensational Space Shifters, will be featured on an episode of the long-running PBS series Austin City Limits that premieres this Saturday, October 15, at 9 p.m. ET; check your local listings. The show captures a March 2016 performance by the rock legend and his group that included reinterpretations of several classic Zeppelin tunes, his solo hit “In the Mood” and a few songs from his latest album, Lullaby and…The Ceaseless Roar.

In a video interview taped in conjunction with the Austin City Limits episode, Plant explains why he’s enjoying playing with The Sensational Space Shifters so much.

“We have a really strong meld of energy, humor and because of the guys in this…sort of co-op, we draw from all different kinds of music without particularly staying in any one zone,” the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer maintains. “So you can create a great cocktail, a melange of power and excitement.”

You can check out the interview, as well as clips of Plant and The Sensational Space Shifters playing “Black Dog” and a medley of Willie Dixon‘s “I Just Want to Make Love to You” and Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love,” at the Austin City Limits‘ official YouTube channel.

“Lemon Song”
“Black Dog”
“Turn It Up”
“In the Mood”
“Babe, I’m Gonna Leave You”
“Little Maggie”
“I Just Want to Make Love to You”/”Whole Lotta Love”
