Music

Robert Plant and Alison Krauss have shared a new version of Led Zeppelin‘s classic track ‘When The Levee Breaks’.

The live cut of the song, which you can listen to below, is their first single since their second collaborative album ‘Raise The Roof’ was released in 2021.

This version, which the pair have been performing on their recent North American tour, features guitarist JD McPherson, drummer Jay Bellerose, bassist Dennis Crouch, string player Stuart Duncan and multi-instrumentalist Viktor Krauss.

During the tour, the pair have also performed Zeppelin classics ‘The Battle Of Evermore’ and ‘Rock And Roll’, as well as a medley that includes ‘Gallows Pole’.

Their tour will continue until September 1 where it wraps up in Vail, Colorado. You can purchase any remaining tickets here.

The duo last toured together in 2022, which itself was their first complete tour in 12 years.

Meanwhile, it was recently revealed that Led Zeppelin’s long awaited documentary Becoming Led Zeppelin is finally set for a cinema release.

The authorised film, which was first announced in 2019, has been acquired for release by Sony Classics Pictures in a number of countries including North America, Latin America, Southeast Asia (except for Japan) and the Middle East. No announcement has been made for the UK or Europe yet.

An official release date for the documentary is yet to be announced. A rough version of the film was premiered at the Venice Film Festival in September 2021 but hasn’t been seen since.

The documentary features new interviews with Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Plant, as well as rare archival interviews with the late John Bonham, who died in 1980.

It is the first time that Led Zeppelin have participated in a documentary in 50 years.
