Robert Plant & Alison Krauss have today announced the forthcoming release of their new album Raise The Roof, out November 19 on Warner Music. The first taste is a new recording of the classic ‘Can’t Let Go’, written by Randy Weeks and first recorded by Lucinda Williams.
The surprise announcement finds Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Plant and 27-time Grammy-winner Krauss, reunited after some fourteen years, following the historic success of their first collaboration Raising Sand (2007).
Listen to ‘Can’t Let Go’ below.
The songs selected for Raise The Roof alternately reflect deep-rooted influences and new revelations. For his part, Robert Plant was keen to introduce the English folk traditions he has loved since adolescence, while Krauss cites hearing “Quattro (World Drift In)” by the American group Calexico, as “the moment I knew we’d make another album.”
“We wanted it to move,” Krauss continues. “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.”
Adds Plant: “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.”
Released in 2007, Raising Sand is one of the most beloved and acclaimed albums of the 21st century. In addition to winning all six Grammy Awards for which it was nominated it was also certified double platinum in the UK.
Robert Plant and Alison Krauss will tour together in 2022, with dates to be announced soon.
