Alison Krauss and Union Station have released their first video from forthcoming album Paper Airplane (Rounder, April 12th 2011). The title track video was shot in Tennessee earlier this year. This is Alison Krauss and Union Station’s first album release since 2004’s platinum-selling Grammy winning Lonely Runs Both Ways. It’s also Alison’s first release since 2007’s Robert Plant collaboration Raising Sand
In the spring of 2008, Honest Tune sat down with both Plant and Krauss in regards to Raising Sand. Click here to read the piece.
Alison Krauss and Union Station features the talents of Krauss (fiddle and lead vocals), Dan Tyminski (guitar, mandolin and lead vocals), Barry Bales (bass and harmony vocals), Ron Block (banjo, guitar and harmony vocals), and Jerry Douglas (Dobro and harmony vocals). Paper Airplane was produced by the band and recorded in Nashville with engineer Mike Shipley (Maroon 5, The Cars, Def Leppard, Joni Mitchell). As bluegrass virtuosos the members of Union Station are beyond compare, and the music they create together transcends all genres. Their work on films such as Cold Mountain and O Brother, Where Art Thou? has contributed immeasurably to a renaissance of American roots music.
