Legendary blues singer Bonnie Raitt will kick off 2016 with the release of her 20th album, Dig in Deep, out Feb. 26.

“Going into this album, I had renewed energy,” Raitt said in a statement Wednesday. “I was really inspired to come up with some songs that went with grooves that I missed playing in my live show, and to dig deeper into some topics I hadn’t yet mined.”

Raitt’s last effort, Slipstream, earned her the honor of Best Americana Album at the 2013 Grammys. “I don’t write easily and can get distracted, but remembering how satisfying it was to come up with something new of my own, and writing with guys I love — like my longtime bandmates George Marinelli and Jon Cleary — I found that once the wheels started turning, the music came pouring out,” the 10-time Grammy winner added.

Pre-order for Dig in Deep begins Nov. 6, and Raitt will announce accompanying tour dates before presale tickets are released Nov. 10.
