PLANT & KRAUSS REUNITE

Robert Plant & Alison Krauss have reunited for Raise the Roof, the follow-up to their Grammy-winning Raising Sand from 2007. Warner Music will release the new set on 11/19 with a tour to follow in 2022.

The album features 12 new recordings of songs by, among others, Merle Haggard, Allen Toussaint and Bert Jansch. Like its predecessor, T Bone Burnett produced Raise the Roof using a band of 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.

The first track released is “Can’t Let Go.”

Plant wanted to introduce English folk traditions, while Krauss cites hearing “Quattro (World Drift In)” by Calexico as “the moment I knew we’d make another album.”

“We wanted it to move,” Krauss said. “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.” Raising Sand received six Grammy Awards including Album and Record of the Year.
