Robert Plant & Alison Krauss Release Live Version Of “When The Levee Breaks”

Robert Plant and Alison Krauss released a new live recording of “When The Levee Breaks”, a song they have been performing together live for several years. The track marks the first release from Plant and Krauss since their 2021 album “Raise The Roof”.

The arrival of “When The Levee Breaks” coincides with kick-off of the their 2024 “Can’t Let Go” tour, which started on June 2 in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

They say the new tour will feature “a cosmic collision of early blues, country deep cuts, revolutionary folk-rock and lost soul music.” Fans can also expect to hear classic Led Zeppelin cuts like “The Battle Of Evermore” and “Rock And Roll”, and other surprises.

Plant and Krauss have been performing “When The Levee Breaks” regularly since hitting the road in support of their first collaborative effort, the Grammy Award-winning 2007 album “Raising Sand”.

Plant was asked in a recent interview with USA Today if he still enjoys performing Led Zeppelin songs in his shows. Plant said: “I love them and am very proud of them and to get to change them around and to hear that voice next to me, it allows for an exotic overview of the more dramatic elements. At times I’m emotional about it because I’m hearing these songs — they are all beautiful adaptations that I could never have dreamt. It’s a great achievement.”
