Robert Plant has reportedly been recording a new album with Alison Krauss in Nashville.
American singer-songwriter Lucinda Williams told Uncut Magazine in an interview earlier this year that she had sung in a recording session for the new album.
Uncut Magazine reported in its May 2020 issue that Williams had recently returned from a recording session with Plant, Krauss and T Bone Burnett for the new album.
“Williams sang on a Pops Staples cover and, still smitten with the song, at one point even belts out its gospel refrain to test the acoustics in her new home,” the magazine wrote.
Plant was photographed at Nashville International Airport with Tony Iommi back in December.
Plant has repeatedly dropped hints that he and Krauss would record a follow up to 2007’s Raising Sand album.
In October 2017, he told Associated Press that he was compiling a list of songs to record with Krauss.
In January 2018, he told WFPK that he had been talking to Krauss about a follow-up album.
And in an interview published in Classic Rock Magazine in November 2019, he said he was “sure” that he and Krauss would record another album.
The last music released by the pair is “Light of Christmas Day,” a song released in 2015 for the soundtrack to the film “Love the Coopers.”
Well,that’s good news really…life beyond SSS.
The hint was there late last year when Robert was photographed bumping into Tony Iommi at Nashville airport on both their ways back to Heathrow.
So the Raising Sand show twice, it was phenomenal, love the first album, looking forward to the new album!
PLant should co-headline with Roger Daltrey as GOLDEN GODS next year
I run the Robert Plant, Our Muse page on Facebook and my readers are rioting from this news they are so happy. All loved Raising Sand; I’m sure some of Robert’s recent work will influence this new album. What happy news!
The more stuff Robert throws out there, the better, as far as I’m concerned.
If Robert Plant and Allison Krauss do release another piece of music together–It will be the answer to multitudes of fervent prayers. Raising Sand is sensational and timeless. More of such will be the source of more joy, long looked forward to.
