Bonnie Raitt will release a new album, Just Like That…, April 22 via Redwing. The musician has unveiled the LP’s first single: a bluesy, self-produced song titled “Made Up Mind.”

Raitt recorded Just Like That… in Sausalito, Calif. last summer. The musician produced it herself 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 said 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.”

She added, “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.”

Last year, Raitt announced her Just Like That tour, which runs from April through the summer. Special guests Lucinda Williams and Mavis Staples will join on select dates. Tickets for the tour are on sale now.

Just Like That… follows Raitt’s 2016 album, Dig in Deep. She and Freeland won a Grammy for Best Americana Album in 2013 for their work on her 2012 effort, Slipstream

In 2016, Raitt told Rolling Stone that she enjoys releasing music on her own terms. “My end of the music business doesn’t rely so much on looks,” she said. “It allows you to age more gracefully than the mainstream pop stars that are total babes. People are snarkier about them getting older. It’s just terrible. So I’m actually relieved that I’m in the character actress end of the world, where I can just get more seasoned and people go, ‘Oh, well, look how mythical she’s become!’”

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.”
