Robert Plant and Alison Krauss have released "It Don't Bother Me," the third single off their new album, Raise the Roof, which will be out on November 19th.
Written by Bert Jansch, the late Scottish folk musician and founding member of the band Pentangle, it features Alison on lead vocals with Plant in the background and David Hildalgo of Los Lobos on guitar.
Plant says, "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. I was very keen to bring some of that into the picture."
And Alison adds, "One of my favorite parts of this [album] is the songs and songwriters that I had never heard of. Working with Robert, and with [producer] T Bone [Burnett], is always a great education in music history."
"It Don't Bother Me" follows the two previous singles, "Can't Let Go" and "High and Lonesome."
Raise the Roof is the duo's second album and first since 2007'sRaising Sand.
A lyric video has been posted for "Can't Let Go" off the upcoming second Robert Plant and Alison Krauss album, Raise the Roof. Their version of the song by California songwriter Randy Weeks isn't the first time it's been covered. It previously won a Grammy for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance when Lucinda Williams sang it on her acclaimed 1998 album Car Wheels on a Gravel Road. Check out what Plant and Krauss do with it on YouTube. Raise the Roof comes out on November 19th.
