The release of Raise The Roof has been accompanied by a host of major appearances and performances from Plant and Krauss. Earlier today they gave their first US TV interview tied to the album on CBS Mornings. Tonight, they will perform on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and tomorrow on CBS Saturday Morning. In the meantime this afternoon, fans can see the two icons play a few of the new songs at 12pm CST / 1pm EST on a global livestream presented in partnership with YouTube (watch), in addition to a virtual conversation with critic Ann Powers at 1pm CST / 2pm EST, during NPR Music’s Listening Party event (rsvp).

In the weeks leading up to Raise The Roof, the album has been celebrated with a New York Times Sunday Arts & Leisure profile, a multi-page spread in Vanity Fair, as well as features in Variety, Entertainment Weekly, People, Associated Press and far beyond. Says the New York Times, “Raise The Roof almost magically reclaims the spectral tone of Raising Sand, then finds ways to expand on it, delving further into both quiet subtleties and wailing intensity.”

Recorded at Nashville’s Sound Emporium Studios, sessions for Raise The Roof began in late 2019 and wrapped just weeks before the world went into lockdown. Like Raising Sand, T Bone Burnett produced the collection, which delivers a cosmic collision of early blues, country deep cuts, revolutionary folk-rock and lost soul music written by legends and unsung heroes like Merle Haggard, Allen Toussaint, The Everly Brothers, Anne Briggs, Geeshie Wiley, Bert Jansch, Ola Belle Reed, Brenda Burns and more.
