Robert Plant And Alison Krauss Reunite For New LP 'Raise The Roof', Share Lucinda Williams Cover

Thursday, 12 August 2021 Written by Jon Stickler

Robert Plant and Alison Krauss have reunited for a second collaborative album.

'Raise The Roof' will arrive through Warner Music on November 19, and feature the newly shared drum-heavy single Can't Let Go, a cover of a song originally written by Randy Weeks and recorded by Lucinda Williams for her 1998 LP 'Car Wheels On A Gravel Road'.

The 12-track record finds the pair dipping into the discography of their musical heroes, including Merle Haggard, Allen Toussaint, The Everly Brothers, Anne Briggs, Geeshie Wiley, Bert Jansch and more.

It was again produced by T Bone Burnett, who helmed the duo's first full-length together, the 2007 six-time Grammy Award-winning 'Raising Sand'. High And Lonesome, though, is an original co-penned by the former Led Zeppelin frontman with Burnett.

The album also includes contributions from drummer Jay Bellerose, guitarists Marc Ribot, David Hidalgo, Bill Frisell and Buddy Miller, bassists Dennis Crouch and Viktor Krauss, and pedal steel guitarist Russ Pahl, among others. 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 also commented: "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."

1. Quattro (World Drifts In)

3. Go Your Way
4. Trouble With My Lover
