The third single from the forthcoming Robert Plant & Alison Krauss album ‘Raise The Roof‘ is out now. ‘It Don’t Bother Me‘ is the final preview of the album. Plant and Krauss transform Bert Jansch’s solo acoustic composition into an empowering arrangement, simmering with spectral flourishes of dolceola, marxophone and pedal steel, handclaps and percussion, and interplaying guitars of Marc Ribot and Los Lobos’ David Hidalgo.
On the inclusion of “It Don’t Bother Me” on ‘Raise The Roof‘, 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.”
Krauss adds “One of my favorite parts of this is the songs and songwriters that I had never heard of. Working with Robert, and with T Bone, is always a great education in music history.”
