Robert Plant and Alison Krauss release live version of When The Levee Breaks

Robert Plant and Alison Krauss have released a live version of the blues classic, “When The Levee Breaks.”

Issued in sync with the launch of an almost 40-date summer tour of North America, the song is the duo’s first single since 2021's chart-topping album, “Raise The Roof.”

The 2024 series sees Plant and Krauss performing highlights from the record – as well as hits from 2007's “Raising Sand” – as part of a unique mix of early blues, country deep cuts, revolutionary folk-rock and lost soul music written by legends and unsung heroes like Merle Haggard, Allen Toussaint, The Everly Brothers and more, alongside reimagined renditions of Led Zeppelin cuts, and more.

The two vocalists are joined by a backing band featuring guitarist JD McPherson, drummer Jay Bellerose, bassist Dennis Crouch, string player Stuart Duncan, and multi-instrumentalist Viktor Krauss, all of whom can be heard on "When The Levee Breaks."
