At first glance, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss don't seem like a likely pairing.
Plant's history with one particularly famous British rock band in the '70s and Krauss' humble upraising during the bluegrass revival of the '90s would appear to be at odds with one another. But when the duo joined forces in 2007 for a T Bone Burnett-produced album of covers, Raising Sand, suddenly it was clear: Plant and Krauss' voices, even with one 20 years older than the other, melded beautifully.
The LP was a monumental success, winning all five Grammys it was nominated for, including Album of the Year. “Sometimes I want to pinch myself and say, ‘Am I really in the middle of this?’ ” Plant said at the time. “There is such a great cacophony of sounds and style. I couldn’t wish for anything better than this.”
Fourteen years later, they aim to do it all again: Raise the Roof, once again produced by T Bone Burnett, will be released on Nov. 19. And once again they've selected a range of covers from early folk songs to newer rock tracks, lending their gorgeous harmonies to each. We take a look at the Songs Robert Plant and Alison Krauss Cover on Raise the Roof below.
