Tonight, fans can watch the two icons play some of the new songs at. 19.00 on a global livestream presented in collaboration with YouTube , in addition to a virtual conversation with critic Ann Powers at. 20.00, which is part of NPR Music's listening party ( sign up here ).

The recordings of Raise The Roof began at Nashville's Sound Emporium Studios in late 2019 and ended just weeks before the world closed. Like Raising Sand, T Bone Burnett has produced this coalition of early blues, secluded country songs, revolutionary folk-rock and forgotten soul music written by legends and unsung heroes such as Merle Haggard, Allen Toussaint, The Everly Brothers, Anne Briggs, Geeshie Wiley, Bert Jansch, Ola Belle Reed, Brenda Burns and more.

Robert Plant says the following about the new album: «These are songs that have gone into our hearts way back in time, but got lost in the twists and curves of the passing years. You hear them and you go 'Man, listen to that song, we got to sing that song!' It's a vacation, really — the perfect place to go that you least expected to find. "

Thanks, Sam. I’m going to see them in Atlanta. Do you know when tickets go on sale? Nothing is listed yet on sites. Trying to get pre-sales before scalpers. Thx.

How about checking with the Cadence Bank Amphitheatre? That's usually what I do. Or possibly Robert's web site?

Looks like theres already Two fake / scalper sites that are claiming tickets being on sale for Atlanta already. However, tickets for Atlanta don’t go on sale yet until later next week. 

Thankfully, I’ve got a week until then and I found the special edition cd with bonus tracks at Target early this morning. . They’re all over tv today with interviews (CBS; late night tv tonight and early tomorrow morning on cbs this Saturday programs).in addition to what Sam said above re: YouTube. 

Usually, I get an email for anything Plant related after signing up for pre-sales, codes, etc... but didn’t this time. Not sure why, so I signed up again through Plant and Krauss’ website.
