ROBERT PLANT & ALISON KRAUSS Streaming New Original Song "High And Lonesome"

Today, with the release of new song, "High And Lonesome", Robert Plant and Alison Krauss offer another glimpse into their first new album in fourteen years, Raise The Roof, out November 19 via Rounder Records. Like its platinum-selling 2007 predecessor, Raising Sand - which won six Grammys, including Album and Record of the Year - Raise The Roof delivers new takes on songs from legends and unsung heroes of folk, blues, country and soul music. "High And Lonesome" is the collection’s lone original, written by Plant and T Bone Burnett, who reprises his Raising Sand role as the album’s producer.

Hear Robert Plant, T Bone Burnett and Alison Krauss in harmony on the standout "High And Lonesome", backed by an all-star lineup of drummer Jay Bellerose, bassist Dennis Crouch, guitarist Marc Ribot and pedal steel player, Russell Pahl, plus Viktor Krauss on mellotron, Jeff Taylor on bass accordion, and Burnett on electric guitar and mellotron.

"High And Lonesome" is the second preview of Raise The Roof, following lead single, Can’t Let Go, a rendition of the Randy Weeks/Lucinda Williams classic.

Recorded at Nashville’s Sound Emporium Studios, sessions for Raise The Roof began in late 2019 and wrapped just weeks before the world went into lockdown. “One of my favorite parts of this is the songs and songwriters that I had never heard of,” says Alison Krauss. “Working with Robert, and with T Bone, is always a great education in music history.”
The rest of Raise The Roof includes deep cuts by Merle Haggard, Allen Toussaint, The Everly Brothers, Anne Briggs, Geeshie Wiley, Bert Jansch, Calexico and more. “It’s such a far cry from everything I’ve done before,” says Robert Plant. “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.”
