Robert Plant has launched a contest to find a filmmaker to create the official music video for "Rainbow," a song that appears on the Led Zeppelin frontman's forthcoming solo album, Lullaby and…the Ceaseless Roar .  The legendary rock singer will help choose the winning clip, along with the contest's sponsor, Genero.tv.

The creator of the chosen video will receive a $3,000 grand prize.  Entries will be accepted until 7:59 p.m. ET on September 8, one day before the U.S. release of Lullaby and…the Ceaseless Roar .

Video makers have full creative control over the content of the clip.  Genero.tv has provided the song's lyrics, while a free download of the track can be accessed for those who register at the website; no fee is required to sign up.  You can check out complete details about the contest at the Genero.tv website .

You also can check out a video featuring streaming audio of "Rainbow" at Plant's official YouTube channel Lullaby and…the Ceaseless Roar is the first album that the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer has recorded with his current group, The Sensational Space Shifters .  The collective is made up mainly of members of Robert's early 2000s band The Strange Sensation , and also features a Gambian musician named Juldeh Camara who plays a one-string fiddle-like instrument called the ritti.

Plant describes Lullaby and…the Ceaseless Roar as "a celebratory record, powerful, gritty, African, Trance meets [Led Zeppelin]."
