Robert Plant and Alison Krauss have shared a cover of Scottish folk singer Bert Jansch’s ‘It Don’t Bother Me’, the latest preview of their forthcoming collaborative album Raise the Roof. Check it out below.
“I’ve been a big follower of Bert Jansch’s work since I was a teenager, and of that whole Irish, Scottish, English folk style that has a different lilt and different lyrical perspective,” Plant said of his and Krauss’ cover in a statement. “I was very keen to bring some of that into the picture.”
Raise the Roof, the follow-up to 2007’s Grammy-winning Raising Sand, is due for release on November 19 via Rounder Records. It includes the duo’s previously released take on Lucinda Williams’ ‘Can’t Let Go’, as well as the original ‘High and Lonesome’.
