Bettye LaVette: New Album Tour With Robert Plant


Bettye LaVette
Bettye LaVette has been invited by Robert Plant to open a string of dates in July. These shows come on the heels of her forthcoming new album, Interpretations: The British Rock Songbook, arriving May 25 on Anti- Records, which includes LaVette's rendition of Led Zeppelin's "All My Love."

Produced by LaVette, Rob Mathes and Michael Stevens, Interpretations is a 12-song journey through compositions by the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Traffic and Pink Floyd, among others, before concluding right where the very idea for the new album started: Bettye's rendition of The Who's "Love Reign O’er Me" from the 2008 Kennedy Center Honors, which appears as an extended bonus track.

About the new album, Sheryl Crow attests, "I've been on the same stage with Bettye twice in the last year and have been captivated each time. On her new album, Bettye finds her own way into these legendary songs yet still is able to remain faithful to the spirit in each of them. Her unique phrasing and raw honesty enables us to appreciate the words in these classics in a whole new way. Just a master class in song interpretation."
