– Brandi Carlile will release "In These Silent Days" on Oct. 1 on Low Country Sound/Elektra Records.
The album's first single, "Right On Time," featuring a music video directed by Courteney Cox, is premiering today.
Carlile said, "Never before have the twins and I written an album during a time of such uncertainty and quiet solitude. I never imagined that I'd feel so exposed and weird as an artist without the armor of a costume, the thrill of an applause and the platform of the sacred stage. Despite all this, the songs flowed through—pure and unperformed, loud and proud, joyful and mournful. Written in my barn during a time of deep and personal reckoning. There's plenty reflection...but mostly it's a celebration. This album is what drama mixed with joy sounds like. It's resistance and gratitude, righteous anger and radical forgiveness. It's the sound of these silent days."
"In These Silent Days was conceived of while Carlile was quarantined at home with longtime collaborators and bandmates Tim and Phil Hanseroth. The 10 songs chronicle acceptance, faith, loss and love.
Recorded once again at Nashville's RCA Studio A with producers Dave Cobb and Shooter Jennings, the album features Carlile (vocals, guitar, piano), Tim Hanseroth (vocals, bass), Phil Hanseroth (vocals, guitar), Cobb (guitar, percussion) and Jennings (piano, organ, synth) as well as Chris Powell (drums, percussion), Josh Neumann (strings) and special guests Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig of Lucius on backing vocals on the track "You And Me On The Rock."
Carlile will perform headline shows this year including an upcoming concert at New Yorks' Forest Hills Stadium this Friday as well as shows at Washington's Gorge Amphitheatre on Aug. 14 and Colorado's Red Rocks Amphitheatre with the Colorado Symphony on Sept. 11 and 12. Additionally, her "Girls Just Wanna Weekend" festival will return to the Hard Rock Hotel in Riviera Maya, Mexico Feb. 1-5, 2022. The sold-out vacation destination event will once again feature an all-female-fronted lineup including performances by Carlile, Sheryl Crow, Tanya Tucker, Indigo Girls, Lucius, Margo Price, Yola, KT Tunstall, Allison Russell, Amythyst Kiah and Katie Pruitt as well as special guests.
The new disc follows Carlile's 2018 breakthrough GRAMMY Award-winning album, "By The Way, I Forgive You," Carlile also has been a member of The Highwomen with Amanda Shires, Natalie Hemby and Maren Morris, produced Tanya Tucker and penned her best selling memoir "Broken Horses" (Crown).
