On February 26, 2016, Bonnie Raitt will release DIG IN DEEP, her twentieth album, on Redwing Records, her own, independent label. The record follows Bonnie's hugely successful 2012 release SLIPSTREAM, which was one of the best-selling independent albums of 2012 and earned Bonnie a GRAMMY for Best Americana Album.
Pre-orders for DIG IN DEEP, to be distributed globally by ADA, are available now. Raitt will shortly announce tour dates for 2016.
Feeling that her recent, two-year-long tour was one of her best ever, Raitt was eager to get her touring band back in the studio. She again produced the album herself (other than one track taken from her 2010 sessions with Joe Henry), and brought Ryan Freeland back as the project's engineer. Notably, Raitt has writing credits on five of the album's songs, the most original compositions she has contributed to a record since 1998's FUNDAMENTAL.
"I was really inspired to come up with some songs that went with grooves that I missed playing in my live show, and to dig deeper into some topics I hadn't yet mined,' she said. "I don't write easily and can get distracted, but remembering how satisfying it was to come up with something new of my own, and writing with guys I love—like my longtime bandmates George Marinelli and Jon Cleary—I found that once the wheels started turning, the music came pouring out."
With DIG IN DEEP, Raitt returns with her characteristic, incomparable blend of blues, rock, R&B, and pop, and a healthy dose of the signature slide work.
