Brandy Clark has released “Buried,” the first single from of her forthcoming self-titled album, out May 19 on Warner Records.
Produced by Brandi Carlile, the collection features eleven songs recorded at the famed Shangri-La studio in Malibu, and also includes special guests Derek Trucks and Lucius.
“This album is a return home to me in many ways,” says Clark. “Musically it’s the rawest I’ve been since 12 Stories and maybe even rawer. When Brandi and I sat down and talked about working together, one thing that really intrigued me was her saying ‘I see it as your return to the northwest’ (Since the two of us are both from Washington state). That comment inspired so much for me. It took me back to where and how I grew up.
“‘Northwest’ and ‘She Smoked In The House’ were both a result of that early conversation,” she continues. “Working with another recording artist on this project was such a gift that I didn’t even know I needed, and changed the way I want to write songs and make records moving forward. My hope is that anyone who hears this album will feel the heart that I put into every note of it.”
“Brandy is one of the greatest songwriters I’ve ever known,” says Carlile. “And I feel like I now know exactly who Brandy Clark is through the portal of this singular brilliantly written album. When I heard the songs for this album, they took me back to the first time I heard Car Wheels on a Gravel Road. I was thinking about Tom Petty, The Pretenders, Kim Richey, Sheryl Crow, Shelby Lynne and the soul of 90s Americana before it had a name. Brandy’s voice is like a friend you’ve had your whole life the second you hear it. I know I’m not alone in feeling this way. This is her moment. This is the one. Sometimes an artist only gets one shot at an album like this in their life. This is the time Brandy has chosen to reveal herself to the world as an artist and a woman, and I was blessed beyond measure to be the person she trusted to support and facilitate that swan dive.”
