Like the first album, Krauss and Plant worked with iconic music producer T Bone Burnett. Raise the Roof will be a 12-track project and will feature Merle Haggard and Everly Brothers covers. Burnett and Plant also wrote an original song for the album dubbed “High and Lonesome.”
Krauss and Plant’s 2007 album won six Grammy Awards, and it earned a platinum certification. Additionally, the album charted at No. 1 on Billboard Top Rock Albums and No. 2 on the Country Album charts.
The new album, Raise the Roof, is currently available for pre-order. According to press release notes, the two are also planning a 2022 tour together.
