Six-time Grammy award-winning singer, songwriter, performer, producer and New York Times best selling author Brandi Carlile will be releasing her new album In These Silent Days on Oct. 1 via Low Country Sound/Elektra Records. Ahead of the release, the album’s first single “Right On Time,” featuring a music video directed by Courteney Cox, has been unveiled today (July 21).
Inspired by the mining of her own history while writing her No. 1 New York Times best selling memoir, Broken Horses (Crown), In These Silent Days was born while Carlile was quarantined at home with longtime collaborators and bandmates Tim and Phil Hanseroth. The ten songs depict acceptance, faith, loss, and love, while channeling icons like David Bowie, Freddie Mercury, Elton John and Joni Mitchell. The project was once again recorded at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A with producers Dave Cobb and Shooter Jennings.
“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.” Carlile continues, “[It was] written in my barn during a time of deep and personal reckoning. There’s plenty of 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.”
Carlile will perform select headline shows this year, including an upcoming concert at NYC’s Forest Hills Stadium on July 23, as well as two nights at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Sept. 11 and 12. Additionally, her Girls Just Wanna Weekend festival will return to the Hard Rock Hotel in Riviera Maya, Mexico next February, featuring performances by Carlile, Sheryl Crow, Tanya Tucker, Indigo Girls, Lucius, Margo Price, Yola, KT Tunstall, Allison Russell, Amythyst Kiah, Katie Pruitt, and more.
