Bonnie Raitt performed her recent single, “Made Up Mind”, from her forthcoming LP, Just like that, on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Raitt delivered the self-produced bluesy single alongside his band right after his 2022 Grammy win.
Released in February, “Made Up Mind” is the lead single from Raitt’s upcoming album, out April 22 via Redwing Records (pre-save HERE). Raitt produced the record herself in California last summer alongside mixing engineer Ryan Freeland. She’s joined on this new album by a collection of musicians Raitt has worked with in the past, including bassist James “Hutch” Hutchinson, drummer Ricky Fataar, keyboardist and backing vocalist Glenn Patscha, and guitarist Kenny Greenberg.
“On this record, I wanted to stretch out,” Raitt noted in a statement. “I always want to find songs that excite me, and what’s different this time is that I tried styles and topics that I hadn’t touched on before.”
Just like that is Raitt’s first album since its release in 2016, Dig deep.
Winner of 11 Grammy Awards, the blues singer recently received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 64th Annual Grammy Awards. “It was unexpected, and I’m thrilled to be able to do it while I’m still working,” she said. “It’s a big sign of validation, and I’m very grateful.”
Raitt begins her Just Like That tour this month (April) through the summer, with special guests Lucinda Williams and Mavis Staples on select dates. Tickets for the tour are on sale now.
