Robert Plant's muse, Patty Griffin, released her 7th solo album this week. It is currently streaming on the Wall Street Journal. Plant himself joins Griffin on three songs, Ohio, Faithful Son and Highway Song.
Ohio is a powerful, slow, droning piece about the underground railroad. Plant sings a prominent harmony vocal under Griffin's. Griffin featured this song at a London show of the Sensational Space Shifters last July.
Faithful Son is more uptempo, with Plant really offering a few Ah-ahs throughout.
Highway Song is a ballad, with Plant and Griffin singing a harmony vocal throughout.
American Kid is available now on Amazon, iTunes, or wherever you buy music. A vinyl edition of American Kid will be released.
