"Please Read the Letter", the latest video from Robert Plant and Alison Krauss collaborative album "Raising Sand", can be viewed at this location.
"Raising Sand", produced by T Bone Burnett, was recently certified platinum by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) for shipments in excess of a million copies in the United States. The Rounder Records album debuted at No 2 on the Billboard Top 200 chart following its release October 23, 2007, marking the highest chart position ever for the label. It remains inside the top 40 five months later.
Last month, Plant and Krauss were recipients of the 2007 Grammy Award for "Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals" for the track "Gone Gone Gone (Done Moved On)".
The Grammy Award was the first-ever for Robert Plant as a solo artist after numerous nominations, and the 21st for Alison Krauss.
The two musicians begin their "Raising Sand World Tour" April 19 in Louisville, KY. Dates have been set through July 1, with more July dates to be announced shortly.
