Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant shared exclusive details about his upcoming album with Alison Krauss by defining its genre as ‘dark and spacey’ during his recent interview with the BBC’s ‘Steve Right in the Afternoon.’
As you probably know, Plant and country singer Krauss’ debut studio album entitled ‘Raising Sand’ was released on October 23, 2007. The album became a major success and won various awards. It reached No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart and was certified platinum.
Since then, their fans have been waiting for the details about the duo’s new album. Recently Plant and Kraus announced that their new album ‘Raise The Roof’ will be released on November 19, 2021, and promoted the record by releasing its first track, ‘Can’t Let Go.’
In his recent interview, Plant stated that the album has no particular genre but has its personality. He then described ‘Can’t Let Go’ as a rock and blues song. Also, Plant highlighted that ‘Raise The Roof’ is an archival study of spacey music, so its genre can be defined as ‘dark and spacey.’
Plant shared details about his new album, saying:
“The wonderful thing about it is that it is nameless. It has its own personality. You could say it’s kind of little bit retro. I mean particularly the track you’re playing that’s a rock and blues track. So, it’s almost like an archival study of pretty space music so I think you can call it ‘dark and spacey.”
