While the album and song are now available for download in North America, in Britain you could download it via iTunes last November, and I did:
The revelation is Plant. Not that he can sing, of course, but that his voice works so well in the style with which this song is done. Plant has changed his singing style dramatically over the last ten years - maybe it’s even fair to say five. Nowhere does the positive aspects of that change come across as well as it does singing next to a very musical operatic singer.
An Alfie Boe and Robert Plant duet is, to use a phrase I frankly don’t like, outside the box. Yet it works far better than I expect most fans of either artist expected it to.
It can now be downloaded via iTunes, or click the link below to get it on Amazon.
