Robert Plant and Alison Krauss have shared another sliver of their highly anticipated LP “Raise the Roof,” out November 19th.

Robert Plant and Alison Krauss’s 2007 album “Raising Sand” swept the Grammys and left legions of fans asking for another set of songs revisited and reinterpreted by the unexpected pairing of the Led Zeppelin frontman and the bluegrass stalwart. But it took 14 years to get there again. The duo, along with the producer T Bone Burnett, are back later this month with “Raise the Roof,” making an album that yet again stands in contrast to so many of its contemporaries and captures a special kind of magic. “A funny thing happens with them,” Burnett said. “When the two of them sing, it creates a third voice, a third part in their harmonies when there are only two parts.”

“High And Lonesome” was written by Plant and T Bone Burnett, and (according to a feature via The Bluegrass Situation) Plant declares it as “a far cry from everything I’ve done before. I love the whole kaleidoscope of music that I’ve explored, but this is a place where you can think within the song, you can decide how to bring home an emotion. It’s another blend that we’ve got, and long may we have more of them.”

Added Krauss, “One of my favourite parts of this is the songs and songwriters that I had never heard of. Working with Robert, and with T Bone, is always a great education in music history.”

“Raise the Roof” marks Plant and Krauss’ first collaboration in over 14 years, following the success of their first collaboration, 2007’s “Raising Sand“, which earned multiple Grammy Awards including Album and Record of the Year.
