“Please Read the Letter” Chart Performance and Award

The new version of “Please Read the Letter” won the Grammy Award for Record of the Year. This time, Plant’s song was able to enter the chart, reaching number twenty. Moreover, it placed at number 102 on the UK chart. This version is completely different from the original. Page and Plant released a rock version of the song. However, Alison and Plant released a country-folk version. This version is more emotional. You can feel every word the narrator of the song is trying to say.

“Please Read the Letter” was written by Charlie Jones, Michael Lee, Jimmy Page, and Robert Plant. The song speaks about a man asking his lover to read a letter he wrote after the end of their relationship.

“Caught out running

With just a little too much to hide

Maybe baby

Everything’s gonna work out fine

Please read the letter

I pinned it to your door

It’s crazy how it all turned out

We needed so much more.”

Here’s the new version of “Please Read the Letter” by Alison Krauss and Robert Plant.
