Robert Plant sings with his romantic partner, Patty Griffin , on her new single "Ohio," and also makes a cameo appearance in the new video.
"I wanted to portray the overwhelming desire to reunite with family and loved ones and the spirit of those who helped," Griffin says of the video on Plant's official website . "Visuals were inspired by historical images such as the false bottom wagon, the stairway from the banks of the Ohio River leading to a safe house of [the abolitionist] John Rankin, and a lantern hoisted up a flagpole to signal that bounty hunters and their dogs were not in the area."
"Ohio" is from Griffin's seventh CD American Kid, which will be released May 7. She previously sang and played guitar on Plant's 2010 Band of Joy album.
Griffin will begin her concert tour May 30 in Ashville, North Carolina, while Plant will hit the road June 20 in Dallas.
