Feb. 25 (UPI) -- Bonnie Raitt is back with new music.
The 72-year-old singer released the song "Made Up Mind" on Friday.
"Made Up Mind" is the lead single from Raitt's forthcoming album, Just Like That... Raitt recorded the album in Sausalito, Calif., in summer 2021 and produced it with mixing engineer Ryan Freeland.
"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."
"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 the fans," she added. "But I need to have something to say or I won't put out a record."
"To celebrate finally being able to play live concerts again by reuniting with my dear friend and inspiration, the great Mavis Staples, is a thrill words can't really express," Raitt said last week on Instagram.
Just Like That... will mark Raitt's first album since Dig In Deep, released in 2016. Raitt will release Just Like That... on April 22.
