Bonnie Raitt on New Album, Working With Music Icons

Acclaimed blueswoman Bonnie Raitt is featured in the April issue of Premier Guitar magazine.

The veteran player dishes on her upcoming album Slipstream, and shares what it was like to play with music icons Greg Leisz and Bill Frisell, among others.

“Greg Leisz is one of my heroes,” Raitt told Premier Guitar. “And to be playing with Bill Frisell and those guys was such an honor.”

The record features 12 tracks, including a reggae version of Gerry Rafferty’s “Right Down the Line,” and Raitt’s interpretations of songs by Bob Dylan and Loudon Wainwright III.

Slipstream is due April 10 via Raitt’s newly-formed Redwing Records label, but you can get a taste of it before then by getting an instant download when you pre-order her recordĀ now.
