Out today (November 19th) is, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss' long-awaited second album, Raise The Roof. The record, which reunites them with producer T-Bone Burnett, marks the followup to the duo's 2007 Grammy Award-winning Raising Sand collection that helped bring Americana music into millions of new households.
Plant & Krauss are rolling out a string of public appearances today to publicize the set, with Blabbermouth posting: “Beginning at 1 p.m. EST the indomitable duo joins forces with YouTube to present a global livestream. Backed by an all-star band in Nashville's Sound Emporium Studios, they will debut a selection of songs from Raise The Roof exclusively for audiences on the platform. The special event will be hosted simultaneously on the official Plant and Krauss YouTube channels.”
The pair will also be interviewed today by CBS' Anthony Mason, and then appear tonight on the network's The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, before being featured on CBS Saturday Morning tomorrow.
