ROBERT PLANT To Guest Wednesday Morning On BBC Radio 6 To Discuss New Album With ALISON KRAUSS

Led Zeppelin legend, Robert Plant, will be joining Lauren Laverne on BBC Radio 6 tomorrow morning (Wednesday, November 24) for a chat about Raise The Roof, his new album with Alison Krauss.

Lauren Laverne's show can be heard from 7:30 AM, UK time and is available online on the BBC website.

Robert Plant and Alison Krauss have released their first new album in fourteen years, Raise The Roof, 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.

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.”

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.”
