Bonnie sat down with Leonard Lopate to talk about Slipstream and her Fall Tour!
We give the singer-songwriter (and self-taught guitarist) something to talk about: her new album and the lessons learned over a four-decade career.
Bonnie Raitt fans asked, and Bonnie Raitt fans shall receive: In response to popular demand for live material, the 10-time GRAMMY award winner will release a new live track “Not the Only One” to iTunes on September 30 (the same day Redwing Records releases ‘Now & Then,’ a two-disc package combining her 2012 success 'Slipstream’ with her first career-spanning retrospective).
Bonnie Raitt Combines 'Now & Then' on double disc set, available 10.1
Bonnie Raitt combines her GRAMMY Award-winning 2012 album 'Slipstream' with her first career-spanning retrospective in the two-disc package 'Now & Then,' out on October 1 on Redwing Records. The limited edition retrospective 'Opus Collection', featuring 16 favorites from "Love Me Like a Man" to "Something to Talk About," was available briefly at Starbucks in 2011 and will now be made available in all retail outlets.
