Drummer Jason Bonham told Detroit radio station 94.7 WCSX that writing new material had always been “on the cards” since the band’s one-off reunion show in London last December.
However, singer Robert Plant has not been involved in the sessions yet.
“I’ve been working with Jimmy and John Paul and trying [out] some new material,” he said. “I don’t know what it will be, but it will be something. At the moment, all I know is I have the great pleasure to go and jam with the two guys and start work on some material.
“When I get there [in the studio] I never ask any questions. If I get a phone call to go and play, I enjoy every moment of it. Whatever it ends up as, to ever get a chance to jam with two people like that, it is a phenomenal thing for me. It’s my life. It’s what I’ve dreamed about doing.
“[The] possibility of doing something [like an album] is on the cards. I really felt it was on the cards from the moment we walked offstage at the O2 [Arena].
“Lots of politics [would need to] get ironed out [before an album could be made].”
