Alison Krauss says she knew a new album with Robert Plant would be made after hearing Quattro (World Drift In) by Calexico.

Well over a decade on from their Grammy-winning Raising Sand, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss have announced the details of a new collaborative album.

Raise The Roof will follow that 2007 debut on November 19th, again produced by T Bone Burnett but this time with a strong list of guest musicians on recordings of staples from artists such as Allen Toussaint, The Everly Brothers and Anne Briggs along side a brand new song written by Plant and Burnett entitled High And Lonesome.

The first of these is Can’t Let Go.

“We wanted it to move,” Krauss remarks. “We brought other people in, other personalities within the band, and coming back together again in the studio brought a new intimacy to the harmonies.”

“You hear something and you go, ‘Man, listen to that song, we got to sing that song!’,” Plant adds. “It’s a vacation really, the perfect place to go that you least expected to find.”
