Track: Robert Plant & Alison Krauss reimagine Bert Jansch’s ‘It Don’t Bother Me’ 

David McClister

With the release of their second album together due this month, Plant and Krauss have shared the final taster from the album with their version of Bert Jansch’s ‘It Don’t Bother Me’.

On the inclusion of “It Don’t Bother Me” on Raise The Roof, Robert Plant says:

“I’ve been a big follower of Bert Jansch’s work since I was a teenager, and of that whole Irish, Scottish, English folk style that has a different lilt and different lyrical perspective. I was very keen to bring some of that into the picture.”

Alison Krauss adds:

“One of my favourite parts of this is the songs and songwriters that I had never heard of, Working with Robert, and with T Bone, is always a great education in music history.”

A soft rendition where these two superstar voices really get to shine. Krauss takes the lead and Plant pops up to harmonise whilst the music is laid back plucked strings and the patter of drums. Altogether is a perfect hypnotic rainy day track.
