New Bonnie Raitt album will feature Joe Henry-produced tracks

Happy New Year, fellow Joe Henry fans!

Rolling Stone is reporting that Bonnie Raitt will release a new album in April, her first in seven years and the first on her own label.  Better yet, the record will feature some tracks produced by Joe Henry.  It is my understanding that these tracks have been on the shelf for some time, their utlimate fate somewhat uncertain.  It is great news, indeed, to read that they will finally see the light of day.

UPDATE: JamBase has more details, including the tracklisting.  Four of the twelve tracks will be from the JH sessions, which presumably included the two JH songs ("God Only Knows" and "You Can't Fail Me Now") and the two Dylan covers.
