    Bonnie Raitt has readied her 21st(!) album, Just Like That… Ahead of the project’s April 22nd release day, the singer-songwriter has shared first single “Made Up Mind,” and announced a massive, eight-month tour.

    Raitt recorded Just Like That… last summer with collaborators old and new. Longtime bassist James “Hutch” Hutchinson and drummer Ricky Fataar return to their posts, while new additions Glenn Patscha and Kenny Greenberg lend keyboards, backing vocals, and guitar. George Marinelli, Raitt’s longtime guitarist and songwriting partner, also returns for the track “Livin’ for the Ones.” Raitt produced the album herself in collaboration with engineer Ryan Freeland.

    “On this record, I wanted to stretch,” Raitt said of Just Like That… “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.”

    It seems impossible that one could break new ground 50 years into their career, but “Made Up Mind” remains fresh with a stomping groove punctuated by feisty guitar licks. In the lead single, Raitt, voice as strong as ever, sings of “The quiet behind a slamming door/ The break of our heart that won’t break no more” with the kind of self-assuredness that only a woman long prepared for a breakup can boast.

    Out on Redwing Records and distributed by ADA/Sub Pop, Just Like That… is available for pre-order on CD, standard black vinyl, and special edition teal vinyl. Starting in March, Raitt will celebrate the album in an extensive tour of the US. See the album’s artwork and tracklist, and Raitt’s full list of tour dates, below, and get tickets via Ticketmaster.
