JUST LIKE THAT… LANDS AT #1 ON SIX BILLBOARD CHARTS IN ITS FIRST WEEK

3 May 2022

Third release from her indie label, Redwing Records, captures attention

Music legend Bonnie Raitt’s newly-released (and 21st) album, Just Like That…, is capturing the attention of fans and critics alike while it scores on sales charts, radio airplay and DSP playlists nationwide. Billboard chart positions include #1 Current Album, #1 Current Rock Album, #1 Americana / Folk Album, #1 Blues Album, #1 Internet Album and #1 Independent Record Label Current Albums.
The album reached #2 on the iTunes U.S. Top Albums chart just behind the #1 Billboard 200 top album of the week, Pusha T’s It’s Almost Dry. At Amazon, Just Like That… was the #1 New Release before the album was even available.

Debuting at #3 on the Americana Radio Albums Chart, its first single, “Made Up Mind,” remained at the #1 spot on the Americana Radio Singles Chart for four weeks, with the track also making it on top Spotify and Apple Music playlists including Rockin’ Vibes, Americana Icons, Got Blues,Grade A, Made for Spatial Audio, New Music Daily, and New In Rock & Roadhouse.
Bonnie was recently featured on Spotify’s Time Square billboard, and earned praise from the likes of the NY Times (“brings new depth to songs of love and loss”), NPR (“she’s carried on in the groove that she established”), NPR Fresh Air (“That is a voice of compassion and generosity, qualities many of us encounter all too rarely these days.”) and Wall Street Journal (“a potent reminder that she’s still here, and still vital”) while her intimate conversation with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe unlocked the stories behind the four self-penned tracks.

The 10-track album is the latest milestone in an already magnificent year following being awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award at this year’s GRAMMY Awards, receiving the Icon Award at the Billboard Women in Music, and her iconic album Nick of Time being inducted into the Library of Congress’s National Recording Registry.
The mix of sounds and approaches on ‘Just Like That…’ reveals how, 50 years after the release of her debut album, Raitt continues to personify what it means to stay creative, adventurous, and daring over the course of a life’s work. “On this record, I wanted to stretch,” she says. “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.”

Like the rest of the musicians around the world, sidelined for two years from their livelihood and great joy—touring and performing live—Raitt and her band finished the first leg of their current eight-month US tour and will be embarking on the second leg joined by Lucinda Williams and longtime friend Mavis Staples on various dates throughout the run. The full tour schedule with info on Special Benefit Seats, is listed at tour.bonnieraitt.com

STEREOGUM – We’ve Got A File On You: Bonnie Raitt

22 April 2022

By Ryan Leas
Bonnie Raitt has, infamously, had one of the stranger career trajectories out there. Way back in the beginning of the ’70s, she quickly garnered the respect of older musicians and the interest of labels thanks to her guitar playing and her ability to dig into blues and folk standards. Across that decade and into the ’80s, she built up a loyal following, but never crossed over to runaway mainstream success — that is, until she was 40 and a whole new chapter of her career began with Nick Of Time.

In Honor of Earth Day…

22 April 2022

While we are celebrating the release of my new album today, we want to also acknowledge and promote all the wonderful events held around the world on this 52nd Earth Day and be reminded of the great actions we can all take to help protect and honor Mother Earth in these times of increasing climate crises.

While the reports have spread widely by renowned climate scientists and leaders around the world about how the tipping point of no return is looming much sooner than even predicted, let us rally our commitment to do whatever we can personally, locally and globally to change and promote policies that will allow us to conserve, re-allocate and transform how we use our limited resources to fuel our human needs.

Making a significant switch to safe energy, conserving and recycling, and adopting more  sustainable methods of managing our forests, oceans, rivers, industries and farms for both crops and raising animals— These are what I believe we can to do to help turn back the tide. Let’s not give up —we have no choice but to keep our shoulders to the wheel.

Let’s honor the Earth every day!

Bonnie 🌏
