Robert Plant Featured on new Patty Griffin Song
This week also sees the release of Patty Griffin's "Ohio", which features Plant on harmonies. According to Griffin, her rock star boyfriend assisted on the song's arrangement as well. "I had the song in an odd shape and couldn't really figure out how to use it," Griffin explained. "He came in and arranged it so that it became what it is. He came up with the tempo and the mood on it." Give it a listen here.
Patty will be in the Bing Lounge on April 12th. Login to the KINK Community for a chance to be in the audience. Contest ends 4/10/2013 at 8am.
