In 2007 Robert Plant & Alison Krauss released Raising Sand, one of the most acclaimed albums of the 21st Century. Now, after 14 years, they return with Raise The Roof.
He’s one of rock’s greatest frontmen and she’s one of country music’s finest and most honored artists, and here’s why you’ll want to give Raise The Roof a spin if you’re not already sold by the first half of this sentence…
Raise The Roof is the sequel to the Grammy-award winning Raising Sand.
Like its predecessor, Raise The Roof was produced by T Bone Burnett, who worked with Plant and Krauss to expand their collaboration in thrilling new directions, accompanied by drummer Jay Bellerose, guitarists Marc Ribot, David Hidalgo, Bill Frisell, and Buddy Miller, bassists Dennis Crouch and Viktor Krauss, along with pedal steel guitarist Russ Pahl among others. The album features twelve new recordings of songs by legends and unsung heroes including Merle Haggard, Allen Toussaint, The Everly Brothers, Anne Briggs, Geeshie Wiley, Bert Jansch and more. Other highlights include a Plant-Burnett original, "High and Lonesome," and the classic "Can't Let Go," written by Randy Weeks and first recorded by Lucinda Williams.
