New album was a trial by fire: Robert Plant

“I’m absolutely ecstatic because there’s nothing worse than being stereotyped. Alison brought such texture to my world. It was fascinating and very good fun,” the Sun quoted him as saying.

He wonders whether the Nashville-recorded album will get the same response from music listeners as has been received by the Led Zeppelin reunion concert.

“People don’t seem to have much time to actually stop before they are on to the next thing,” he said.

The rocker, however, still considers Raising Sand to be a success.

“If it’s a success, that’s great. But if it’s not, I’ll still think it’s a success because we did it,” he said.

Plant also revealed that working with Alison turned out to be a very different experience for him.

“We were just sitting back looking at each other, going, ’s**t’. I mean she taught me to sing!” he said.

“I thought I’d probably been around too long but she taught me to sing delicate harmonies. I really had to think and learn about musical intervals. It was trial by fire but you can’t tell because I got it. I got it. The first day I got there with an acoustic guitar she was saying you go from the fourth fret to the sixth and down to one. I was going ‘What!? Well what about baby, baby?’” he added. (ANI)
