Yeah I know – we’re still going with the song puns. Now I wouldn’t say I’m a huge fan of Bonnie Raitt, but I have spent a lot of time listening to her music. That’s mostly because my father has asked me on numerous occasions to teach him how to make Bonnie Raitt CDs for his co-workers. I really appreciate her gripping lyrics and wonderful guitar play and enjoy listening to her whenever her music pops up.

Bonnie Raitt fans (my dad included) will be stoked to know that she has a new album, Slipstream, in the works. This will be her first in seven years and a followup to 2005’s Souls Alike. Here’s what she had to say on the Washington Post.

“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,” Raitt said. “So that was really valuable because I waited until I was really ready to come back.”

Much like Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails and Pearl Jam, Bonnie Raitt will be releasing Slipstream through her own record label, Redwing Records. Raitt hasn’t officially toured since 2006, so perhaps she’s feeling like it’s time to hit the road to support her new album. She hasn’t been totally out of the spotlight, however. Raitt was featured on A Prairie Home Companion and I actually got to see her in Iowa when she performed with Jackson Browne on the stump. Yeah – my pops was pretty jealous.
