Robert Plant and Alison Krauss stream new track Somebody Was Watching Over Me

Robert Plant and Alison Krauss are streaming a cover of the Brenda Burns song, “Somebody Was Watching Over Me”, as a preview to the November 19 release of their new album, “Raise The Roof.”

Produced by T-Bone Burnett, the project 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."

The follow-up to the pair’s Grammy Award-winning 2007 record, “Raising Sand”, was recorded at Nashville's Sound Emporium Studios in late 2019 and completed just weeks before the world went into lockdown.

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