For the pre-taped, out-of-studio performance from Nashville, Plant and Krauss — encircled by their troupe of guitarists and percussionists — delivered “Can’t Let Go” and, as a web exclusive, “Trouble With My Lover” from the new LP, their first album together since 2007’s Grammy Album of the Year-winning Raising Sand.
The appearance offered a preview of Plant and Krauss’ just-announced 2022 trek, the first time the duo have toured together in 11 years.
Hours after The Late Show virtual visit, the Led Zeppelin legend and bluegrass singer stopped by the Country Music Hall of Fame to talk to CBS Mornings about their latest collaboration.
“It’s tough, singing what they call harmonies, was always a but a challenge to me. But I cracked it,” Plant said, noting that, prior to Krauss, his only other duet with a female artists was Led Zeppelin’s “Battle of Evermore” with Fairport Convention singer Sandy Denny.
“I’m having to learn stuff that isn’t natural to me. Sometimes, it’s not easy, but it’s doable.”
Plant and Krauss then again performed two Raise the Roof tracks on CBS, “Searching for My Love” and reprising “Can’t Let Go.”
