In a recent interview with Ultimate Classic Rock, Robert Plant reflected on the 14 years gap between releases from the duo, and how time has strengthened their connection, saying: "Most musicians form a band, then they stay in the band until it's over – 20 years, 30 years, 50 years, whatever it is, and it starts to look sadly decrepit. It's like people hanging onto a life raft or staying in a comfortable place."

"With us two, there's nothing written in blood," he continued. "We were ready to do something new, and we knew how good it was before, so we can just join up again and see where we go. We've got nothing to lose.”

In the same interview, Krauss described Robert’s singing as "the epitome of freedom and spontaneity."

Raise the Roof is set to arrive on November 19th. Pre-order, here.
