via BBC Music / Youtube
Bonnie Raitt had released an official lyric video of her lead single “Made Up Mind” from her forthcoming album Just Like That….
“Just Like That…” will be released on April 22. It’s been six years since Raitt’s last album, Dig in Deep, which topped Billboard’s blues and folk charts and reached No.11 on the Billboard 200.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer had once again worked with recording and mixing engineer Ryan Freeland on this album recorded last summer. It also features two longtime members of her band, bassist James “Hutch” Hutchinson and drummer Ricky Fataar, along with guitarist and songwriting partner George Marinelli and two new players, keyboardist Glenn Patscha and guitarist Kenny Greenberg.
Raitt said in a press release:
“On this record, I wanted to stretch. I always want to find songs that excite me, and what’s different this time is that I’ve tried some styles and topics I haven’t touched on before.”
“I’m really aware of how lucky I am, and I feel like it’s my responsibility to get out there and say something fresh and new — for me and for the fans. But I need to have something to say or I won’t put out a record.”
The singer-songwriter and guitarist previously announced to hit the road in support of her upcoming album in April for an eight-month U.S. tour. The leg features guest artists such as the rock band NRBQ and Lucinda Williams, as well as the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Mavis Staples, who will also be joining the leg for the new schedule this summer.
Ticket information and full show details are available on Raitt’s website.
