According to Tennessean.com, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss' video for "Gone, Gone, Gone (Done Moved On)", the first single off the duo's gold-selling joint project "Raising Sand", will premiere on VH1 on Monday, December 3.
Plant, Krauss and producer T Bone Burnett recently completed work on the clip, which was shot in Nashville with director Rocky Schenck and adds a raucous element to the EVERLY BROTHERS song, with scenes bouncing between shimmering mylar glitz and a performance stage reminiscent of a vintage Technicolor movie.
As previously reported, Plant has told Rolling Stone magazine that he plans to hit the road in early 2008 with Krauss to promote "Raising Sand". In addition to the "Raising Sand" material, they'll perform songs from their catalogs — including LED ZEPPELIN's "When the Levee Breaks" and "Black Dog".
A disc of tender, mostly acoustic duets, "Raising Sand" — which was produced by T Bone Burnett — debuted at No. 2 n The Billboard 200 chart in late October, becoming an unexpected hit.
"Raising Sand" includes versions of the EVERLY BROTHERS' "Gone, Gone, Gone (Done Moved On)", TOM WAITS and KATHLEEN BRENNAN's "Trampled Rose" and "Please Read the Letter", first released on the 1998 PLANT/JIMMY PAGE album "Walking Into Clarksdale".
According to Billboard.com, Plant and Krauss first performed together in 2004 at a Leadbelly tribute at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, but it took several years before they found time to team up in the studio with Burnett in Nashville and Los Angeles.
Tennessean.com reported that Plant and Krauss taped an episode of "CMT Crossroads" in October at The Mill at Lebanon in Tennessee that will air at a later date.
Plant and Krauss were interviewed on BBC's "Breakfast" show on October 31 about "Raising Sand" CD. Watch the nine-minute segment below.
