“It’s mood music with a razor edge, pain fronting as bliss, delivered by a vet who understands that the blues are often about just that.”Rolling Stone

“Slipstream relies on Bonnie;’s voice and slide playing–and, above all, her felicitous ability to pick the right song.”Uncut

Bonnie Raitt’s new album “Slipstream” is daring, bluesy, and steeped with the inimitable slide guitar and soulful vocals that could only be hers. “Slipstream” marks her first new album in seven years.

While most of “Slipstream” is self-produced and features Raitt’s longtime touring band, four of the album’s songs were helmed by celebrated producer Joe Henry (Allen Toussaint, Solomon Burke) and showcase his usual crew of extraordinary musicians. Additional guests include Bill Frisell, Al Anderson (formerly of NRBQ), Ireland’s Paul Brady, and Maia Sharp. The album’s twelve tracks feature Raitt’s renditions of songs by such luminaries as Bob Dylan, Joe Henry, and Loudon Wainwright III.
