All while the artist is continuing her current tour following the release of her latest studio album, Just Like That… Fans can check out the tour dates below.

According to a press statement, “A joint initiative was launched in 2019 between YouTube Music and Universal Music Group to upgrade some of the most iconic music videos of all time to the highest visual quality, to ensure that current and future generations will be able to see and hear timeless classics as they’ve never been experienced before. Raitt has joined this initiative with the re-release of 13 of her Capitol Records era music videos made between 1989 – 2006, available now on her Official YouTube Channel.”

Four videos from Raitt’s March 1989 classic Nick of Time were the first to be re-released, including “Love Letter,” “Nick Of Time,” “Have A Heart,” and “Thing Called Love,” which features a flirtatious energy with actor Dennis Quaid.

The reissue of the videos coincided with the induction of Nick of Time as one of 25 benchmark audio recordings for this year’s National Recording Registry. The Library of Congress has chosen to preserve Nick of Time as a recording that helped shape our nation’s history and culture, bringing the registry up to 600 works.

Additionally, three singles from Raitt’s 7x-platinum June 1991 album Luck Of the Draw were remastered, including “Something To Talk About,” as well as the album’s second single, the ballad “I Can’t Make You Love Me.”

These videos were followed by “Not The Only One,” which hit No. 34 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1992, the sultry hit “Love Sneakin’ Up On You,” “Storm Warning,” and from her Fundamental album, “Blue For No Reason.”

Bonnie Raitt recently released her 21st album ‘Just Like That…,’ receiving the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. She was also honored with the Icon Award at this year’s Billboard Women In Music Awards. 

In March, Raitt embarked on a 75-date US tour, including multiple sold-out shows in Boston, Nashville, Salt Lake City, Seattle, Washington DC, NYC, and the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado.
