Bonnie Raitt announces 'Slipstream' release date, first album in seven years
" I hadn't stopped moving in a very long time so I really wanted to take a total break and not concentrate on making a new record or what I was going to do next. So that was really valuable because I waited until I was really ready to come back," says Raitt.
The 12-track album features an eclectic mis of blues, rock and soul, with even a dash of reggae and Celtic sounds. On the album, Raitt covers Bob Dylan's "Million Miles" and "Standing in the Doorway." She calls it a "new batch of great songs."
The album will be out April 10.
