Bonnie Raitt is a blues-rock legend with nine Grammys and five platinum albums under her belt. Her rootsy and passionate take on everything blues — combined with her intimate understanding of composition, deft slide-guitar skills and soulful vocals — helped Raitt become an icon.

It’s been 40 years since Raitt started releasing albums, and she’s still in remarkably fine form. In fact, her new 16th studio release ranks among her best yet. Slipstream comes seven years after her last release, and it’s a daring and introspective album with reggae, soul, rock and blues influences.

Here, Raitt plays LIVE and talks to WXPN’s Michaela Majoun about the making of Slipstream.

This edition of World Cafe originally aired June 18, 2012.

World Cafe is hosted and produced by David Dye in Philadelphia at WXPN presents interviews and performances with today’s essential and emerging artists.
