Robert Plant and Alison Krauss To ‘Raise The Roof’ This November!

August 12, 2021

Robert Plant and Alison Krauss have created a new album together and will be releasing “Raise The Roof”, on November 19th! This surprise announcement is the follow up to their ’07 “Raising Sand” album, which debuted #2 on the Billboard 200 and earned six Grammy Awards, including “Record Of The Year”.

“Raise The Roof” was produced by T Bone Burnett, who worked with Plant and Krauss on their 2007 album. This new album is packed with amazing musicians; drummer Jay Bellerose, guitarists Marc Ribot, David Hidalgo, Bill Frisell and Buddy Miller, bassists Dennis Crouch and Viktor Krauss, pedal steel guitarist Russ Pahl & more!

The new Plant/Krauss album has twelves songs including covers of Merle Haggard, Allen Toussaint, The Everly Brothers, Anne Briggs, Geeshie Wiley, Bert Jansch and more. They’ve also recorded the classic “Can’t Let Go” (hear it above), written by Randy Weeks and first recorded by Lucinda Williams.

Krauss said, “We wanted it to move. We brought other people in, other personalities within the band, and coming back together again in the studio brought a new intimacy to the harmonies.”

Plant added, “You hear something and you go ‘Man, listen to that song, we got to sing that song!’ It’s a vacation, really — the perfect place to go that you least expected to find.”

01. Quattro (World Drifts In)
