Plant also reveals a spectacular duet rendition of Charley Feathers’ rockabilly classic, ‘Too Much Alike‘ featuring Patty Griffin HERE
“I spent time in the hill country of north Mississippi around Como, dropping back to Clarksdale, the incredible center of black music talent over the years,” says Plant. “I weaved my car through the Delta back roads, listening to the remarkable protestations of Mississippi AM radio. I was looking at my world and my times from this unfamiliar place and found myself exposed to a nightmare world of half-truths”
‘Digging Deep‘ showcases landmark tracks from each of the 8x GRAMMY® Award-winner’s 11 masterful solo albums, including a number of songs featured on Digging Deep with Robert Plant. Highlights include the #1 rock hit, ‘Hurting Kind,’ and the GRAMMY® Award-nominated ‘Shine It All Around,’ alongside the previously unreleased exclusives, ‘Nothing Takes the Place of You’ (written by New Orleans musician Toussaint McCall and recorded for the acclaimed 2013 film, Winter In The Blood), ‘Charlie Patton Highway (Turn It Up – Part 1),’ taken from the soon to be released album Band of Joy Volume 2 and a spectacular duet rendition of Charley Feathers’ rockabilly classic, ‘Too Much Alike’ featuring Patty Griffin.
