Following a UK premiere on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss have released a visual for “Searching For My Love,” their first official music video in nearly 14 years.
The cinematic video follows a series of lonely travelers on a mystical journey up a mountaintop, through the smoke and fog, down dirt paths and into the ocean, crossing paths with mermaids and more in a quest to discover a deeper treasure.
Originally written and recorded by Bobby Moore & The Rhythm Aces, “Searching For My Love” is a song that Robert Plant first started singing as a teenager at school. He calls it “another nugget of beautiful lost soul music which has been ricocheting between me and Alison for a long time,” and the two recently performed their arrangement on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, CBS Saturday Morning and NPR’s Tiny Desk (Home) Concerts.
Beginning in June, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss will bring the music of 2021’s T Bone Burnett-produced Raise The Roof, and 2007’s Grammy-sweeping Raising Sand, on their first international tour in well over a decade. The run of bandshell and amphitheater shows includes stops at NYC’s Forest Hills Stadium and Chicago’s Jay Pritzker Pavilion, as well as top spots at Bonnaroo and Roskilde Festival.
Raise The Roof is currently in its 13th consecutive week at No.1 on the Americana radio charts, following its debut in the Top 10 on the Billboard 200, No.1 on Billboard’s Top Rock, Americana/Folk, Bluegrass, and Independent Albums charts, No.3 on Top Country and Album Sales, and No.5 in the UK.
Named one of the best albums of 2021 by Esquire, Mojo, Uncut, and others, Raise The Roof amassed critical acclaim from The New York Times, New Yorker, Vanity Fair, Variety, Pitchfork, People, Associated Press, NPR, and more, in addition to appearances on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, The Kelly Clarkson Show, CBS, PBS, MSNBC, the BBC, and beyond.
