We love our tried and true holiday standards, but there’s something about classic rock artists trying their hand at holiday cheer that takes us back to the Christmases of our youths and how simple everything seemed – and Robert Plant’s 2015 holiday effort is no different. Titled “The Light of Christmas Day,” this soaring holiday ballad finds the former Led Zeppelin singer enlisting the help of bluegrass-country legend Alison Krauss yet again, the pair’s first collaboration since their 2007 Grammy winning album Raising Sand and the theme to last year’s holiday romantic comedy, Love The Coopers.
Soft and gentle with an undercurrent of something profound beating away steadily underneath Plant and Krauss’ voices, “The Light of Christmas Day” celebrates pure, unadulterated joy and viewing the world at this time of year through the eyes of a child; anything is possible, miracles happen, and people do have it within themselves to be as innocent as children in the light of Christmas day. We couldn’t agree more, and the combination of Robert Plant and Alison Krauss makes for a listening experience that’s sure to tug at your heart and make you want to sit beneath the tree the way you did as a young one, staring at the lights and presents in anticipation of wonderful things to come.
