Bonnie Raitt Releases ‘Made Up Mind’: Look + Listen

Showing off an ever-incredible strong skill set, Bonnie Raitt‘s new rendition of the Bros. Landreth’s song, “Made Up Mind.” features her slide bar guitar work.

Having recorded the song’s video in Los Angeles, with the singer-songwriter said that they chose a simple, live setup because “[w]e wanted to capture the vibe of the full band performing because ultimately we couldn’t wait to get out on tour and play this song live.”

Released on Friday (4.22) “Made Up Mind” appears on Raitt’s new album, Just Like That… and includes four new songs by the superstar singer/songwriter, in addition to a handful of titles she’s been eager to record for some time, including Toots and the Maytals’ “Love So Strong,” “Something’s Got a Hold of My Heart” by NRBQ’s Al Anderson, and “Made Up Mind.”

About the project Bonnie stated “I knew I had to cut ‘Made Up Mind’ the first time I heard it on the Bros. Landreth’s Juno award-winning album, Let it Lie,” Raitt says. “It has my favorite combo of soulful groove, strong melody and lyrics, and, what I love the most, Joey’s killer blues guitar. My band and I couldn’t wait to do our own take and I’m really happy with how it turned out.” “I met the Bros. Landreth after being knocked out by their opening set at the Winnipeg Folk Festival in 2014. Reminded me of Little Feat and the Band — great songs, singing, and killer playing. And our hope was the music video could capture some of that same spirit.”

Raitt goes back on the road in May in support of Just Like That…, and has dates scheduled all the way through November supported by opening acts Lucinda Williams, Mavis Staples, and Marc Cohn on select dates.
