Alison Krauss & Union Station – Paper Airplane Video

I wondered what the new Alison Krauss & Union Station would change their sound like in the wake of her collaboration with Rock God Robert Plant that netted the duo, and producer T Bone Burnett,  5 Grammys including Album of the Year and platinum status for Raising Sand. The answer from the sound of their first self-titled single from their upcoming Paper Airplane (4/12)  appears to be not much. I guess after you’ve won 26 Grammys and sold millions of albums you don’t try and fix what isn’t broken. The video has a Grapes of Wrath-era look that fits the sound the band has cultivated over their 21 years in existence. But like the stiletto shoes that accompany Krauss’ simple gabardine dress there is a contemporary slant to their unique bland of bluegrass. I am willing to say that few can match Krauss in the vox department.
