[lastfm link_type=""]Alison Krauss [/lastfm]and [lastfm link_type=""]Union Station[/lastfm] are coming out with a new album on April 12th.
band’s first since 2004′s [lastfm link_type=""]Lonely Runs Both Ways[/lastfm]. The album will be called [lastfm link_type=""]Paper Airplane[/lastfm] and it’s her first project since doing some stuff with [lastfm link_type=""]Robert Plant[/lastfm], which won a bunch of Grammys two years ago, including Album of the Year. A sequel to that was in the works but ended up being scrapped by Plant, who says he makes it a point in his solo career to avoid repeating himself. Ahhh, does someone have grumpy pants? Anyway, Plant says:”We cut quite a lot of stuff with Alison.” “We spent enough time to know that we just didn’t have the right material. We had such a great outing with ‘[lastfm link_type=""]Raising Sand[/lastfm],’ it had such joy and humor and reverie, and we weren’t hitting from the same angle.” Paper Airplane is Alison’s 14th album.
