Bonnie Raitt appeared on The Ellen Show for a rousing performance of her recent song, “Livin’ for the Ones.” The musician showcased the pensive tune, which reflects on embracing life for those who are no longer with us, alongside her band.

The song appears on Raitt’s new album, Just Like That…, which was released April 22 via Redwing. The record includes four new songs by Raitt, as well as a handful of covers she’d been eager to record — including Toots and the Maytals’ “Love So Strong,” “Something’s Got a Hold of My Heart” by NRBQ’s Al Anderson, and Bros. Landreth’s “Made Up Mind.”

Raitt recorded Just Like That… in Sausalito, California last summer. The musician produced the record herself, working alongside mixing engineer Ryan Freeland. She tapped a collection of musicians for the songs: bassist James “Hutch” Hutchinson, drummer Ricky Fataar, keyboardist and backing vocalist Glenn Patscha, and guitarist Kenny Greenberg.

“On this record, I wanted to stretch,” Raitt noted in a statement. “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.”

Raitt returns to the road this month in support of Just Like That…, and she has dates scheduled all the way through November. Raitt will receive support from Lucinda Williams, Mavis Staples, and Marc Cohn on select dates.

Congratulations to Blues Hall of Famer Bonnie Raitt who was honored at last night's GRAMMYs with the Lifetime Achievement Award.

“To be validated by my peers… it’s a very big celebration and I’m very grateful.” On being an inspiration and influence to other musicians, like Sheryl Crow who was inspired to play guitar after hearing Raitt play for the first time, she says “it’s hard for me to imagine because I still feel like I’m just starting out. It’s been 50 years, but you know people have been really kind. So many more women are playing lead guitar - Prince’s band, Beyonce’s band, all the late-night bands who have women musicians. It’s fantastic.”
