New striking strokes
9 October 2021
Artists: ROBERT PLANT and ALISON KRAUSS
Who: Former Led Zeppelin frontman & American bluegrass songstress.
They worked together before on 2007 album ‘Raising The Sand’
NEW ALBUM: RAISE THE ROOF
Out: 19 November 2021 via Warner Music.
Robert Plant (in an interview with Mojo): “The good thing with Alison and
I is that we’re a couple of kindred spirits. Most musicians form a band, then
they stay in the band until it’s over – 20 years, 30 years, 50 years, whatever it
is, and it starts to look really decrepit. With us, there’s nothing written in blood.
We were ready to do something new, and we knew how good it was before, so
we can just join up again and see where we go. We’ve got nothing to lose.”
New single: High And Lonesome
Funky groove, but where’s Alison Krauss?
Clap your hands, folks…..

Artist: ROBERT PLANT
Album: DIGGING DEEP: SUBTERRANEA
Released: 2 October 2020
Info: A compilation album with the songs assembled as a companion to his
series ‘Digging Deep With Robert Plant Podcast‘ exploring the composition
and recording of hits, album tracks, and previously unreleased songs throughout
his solo career.
Robert Plant: “It’s certainly not a ‘best of’. The songs have been lying side-by-side with their old comrades for 20 years, 30 years. How are they going to feel when they come face-to-face with something 20 years younger? Putting something from 1982 with a song from 2006, or putting a Band of Joy track next to an enlarged emotional moment from Rockfield Studios, from that to Peter Gabriel’s place. All very different crew members, different participants… and so then it all takes on a whole different personality when t’s a new bedfellow lying on each side of it. So, the context is crazy. It’s a mind bomb, really. And sometimes it’s like a real curve. As is the journey.” Full Spin interview here.
One huge track is missing in this compilation.

ROBERT ANTHONY PLANT was born in West Bromwich, Staffordshire, England on
20 August 1948, seventy years ago. Blessed with an overwhelming blues rock vox
and an awe-inspiring talent for epic songwriting he formed – in 1968 – with Jimmy
Page, John Paul Jones and John Bonham one of the most famous, hard rockin’ and inspirational rock band ever in musical history. The fact that he looked like a young
blond God added to the iconic band’s worldwide fanatic following. Led Zep called it
a day after the death of drummer Bonham in 1980. Plant started an impressive solo
career and collaborated with countless other artists. His newest album Catch Fire was released last year. To celebrate the 70th birthday of this outstanding artist/performer
