Robert Plant and Alison Krauss stream new single High And Lonesome

Robert Plant and Alison Krauss are streaming the new single, “High And Lonesome”, from their forthcoming album, “Raise The Roof.”

Writeen by Plant and producer T Bone Burnett, the song follows “Can’t Let Go” as the second preview to the project, which marks a follow-up to their Grammy Award-winning 2007 record, “Raising Sand.”

Due November 19, “Raise The Roof” was recorded at Nashville's Sound Emporium Studios in late 2019 and wrapped just weeks before the world went into lockdown.

The set sees the singers joined by a lineup that includes 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.

"One of my favorite parts of this is the songs and songwriters that I had never heard of," says Krauss. "Working with Robert, and with T Bone, is always a great education in music history."

Plant and Krauss plan to tour together in support of “Raise The Roof” in 2022.
