Robert Plant and Alison Krauss Announce New Album – Music News

Robert Plant and Alison Krauss have recorded a new album together.

The two artists have announced that their LP ‘Raise The Roof’ will be available from November 19 via Warner Music. The record comes 14 years after their first collaboration “Raising Sand”, released in 2007 to critical acclaim, winning five Grammys.

The first song on the album is “Can’t Let Go”, which was originally written by Randy Weeks, and specifically recorded by Lucinda Williams for her 1998 album “Car Wheels On A Gravel Road”.

“Raise The Roof” was produced by T Bone Burnett and features musicians such as drummer Jay Bellerose, guitarists Marc Ribot, David Hidalgo, Bill Frisell and Buddy Miller, bassists Dennis Crouch and Viktor Krauss, guitarist pedal steel Russ Pahl and more.

The disc is composed of 12 tracks written by songwriters such as The Everly Brothers, Anne Briggs, Geeshie Wiley, Bert Jansch, Merle Haggard, Allen Toussaint and many others, while “High and Lonesome” is an original song written by Plant and Burnett.

Announcing the project, the Led Zeppelin Plant legend, 72, insisted that fans will be surprised by the duo’s choice of songs and their renditions.

He said: “It really is a vacation – the perfect place to go that you least expected to find.

“You hear something and you’re like, ‘Dude, listen to this song, we gotta sing this song!'”

Krauss, 50, added: “We wanted to rock it.

“We brought in other people, other personalities within the band, and being in the studio brought a new intimacy to the harmonies.”

After the album’s release, Plant and Krauss plan to tour together again in 2022.

1. ‘Quattro (the world is drifting)’
