(hennemusic) Robert Plant and Alison Krauss will perform on CBS-TV's The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Friday, November 19. The appearance is in sync with the same-day release of the pair's new album, "Raise The Roof."
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.
Produced by T-Bone Burnett, 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.
"Raise The Roof" was introduced with a cover of the 1998 Lucinda Williams track, "Can't Let Go", written by singer-songwriter Randy Weeks. Watch the lyric video here.
