With 'Dig In Deep', her twentieth album, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Bonnie Raitt comes out swinging. The follow-up to 2012's triumphant 'Slipstream', the new record illustrates the delicate balance of consistency and risk-taking that has defined Raitt's remarkable career for more than forty-five years.
On this album, Raitt kept things focused and close to home. Feeling that her recent two-year-long tour was one of her best ever, she was eager to get her touring band back in the studio. She again produced the album herself, and notably, she has writing credits on five of the album's songs—the most original compositions she has contributed to a record since 1998's 'Fundamental'.
In many ways, 'Dig In Deep' is a continuation of a new chapter for Raitt that started with the release of 'Slipstream'. That album marked her return to studio recording after seven years and the launch of her label, Redwing Records. A huge success, 'Slipstream' sold over a quarter-million copies in 2012, making it one of the top-selling independent albums, and earned Raitt her tenth GRAMMY Award, for Best Americana Album. From the New York Times to People Magazine, 'Slipstream' was also lauded in numerous critics' lists for album of the year.
"The response to 'Slipstream' was such a refreshing and unexpected boost," she says. "So going into this album, I had renewed energy."
