Robert Plant and Alison Krauss have announced the forthcoming release of their new album Raise The Roof, out November 19 on Rounder Records.

The surprise announcement finds Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Plant and 27-time Grammy-winner Krauss, reunited after some fourteen years, following the historic success of their first collaboration 2007’s Raising Sand, which debuted at number 2 on the Billboard 200, generated platinum sales and earned six Grammy Awards including Album and Record of the Year.

Like its predecessor, Raise The Roof was produced by T Bone Burnett, who worked with Plant and Krauss to expand their collaboration in new directions, accompanied by 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. Other highlights include a Plant-Burnett original “High and Lonesome” and a first single, the classic “Can’t Let Go” written by Randy Weeks and first recorded by Lucinda Williams.
