ROBERT PLANT Talks Post-Show Adrenaline - "It Feels Like Gin & Tonic"; Video

In the new video below from AXS TV, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss sit down with Katie Daryl on Now Listen to talk about their upcoming Can't Let Go tour. They share the creative process behind their collaboration and how their different musical backgrounds and interests combine to create a unique sound.

Today, to celebrate the launch of their extensive summer tour, Plant and Krauss released their own rendition of "When The Levee Breaks" (Rounder Records). With the song having been a part of the country, blues and rock n roll canon for nearly a century, the duo’s smouldering take quickly became a climactic, ephemeral staple of their setlists over the past several years. Now, as more and more fans are getting to experience the fiddle-led, harmony-laden and dirge-like arrangement of a perennial favorite, Plant and Krauss are pleased to present their live version as a gift for all to hear.

"When The Levee Breaks" is Robert Plant and Alison Krauss’ first single since 2021’s chart-topping album, Raise The Roof. The Rock & Roll Hall of Famer and 27x Grammy-winner are currently performing highlights from the record – as well as hits from 2007’s Raising Sand, and choice reimaginings of Led Zeppelin cuts – on a run of nearly 40 dates across North America. Reunited once more, and much sooner than the twelve years that passed between their previous two tours, the two vocalists are joined by an ace ensemble of guitarist JD McPherson, drummer Jay Bellerose, bassist Dennis Crouch, string player Stuart Duncan, who is showcased on the stunning modal fiddle solo and multi-instrumentalist Viktor Krauss, all of whom can be heard on When The Levee Breaks.

Plant and Krauss launched their new North American tour earlier this month. The trek will see Plant, Krauss and their all-star band bring spellbinding vocal performances and uncanny arrangements to amphitheaters, pavilions, opera houses and other historic venues from coast to coast.
