Robert Plant and Alison Krauss have shared another sliver of their highly anticipated LP Raise the Roof, out Nov. 19.
“High And Lonesome” was written by Plant and T Bone Burnett, and (according to a feature via The Bluegrass Situation) Plant declares it as “a far cry from everything I’ve done before. I love the whole kaleidoscope of music that I’ve explored, but this is a place where you can think within the song, you can decide how to bring home an emotion. It’s another blend that we’ve got, and long may we have more of them.”
Added Krauss, “One of my favorite parts of this is the songs and songwriters that I had never heard of. Working with Robert, and with T Bone, is always a great education in music history.”
Raise the Roof marks Plant and Krauss’ first collaboration in over 14 years, following the success of their first collaboration, 2007’s Raising Sand, which earned multiple Grammy Awards including Album and Record of the Year.
