    Brandi Carlile has announced a new studio album called In These Silent Days, and shared the lead single, “Right on Time”.

    Written and recorded by Carlile while in quarantine with her longtime bandmates Tim and Phil Hanseroth, the album found inspiration from her recent memoir, Broken Horses, leading to 10 tracks that arose from “a time of deep and personal reckoning.”

    As Carlile explained in a statement, “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.” Along with the Hanseroth brothers, the album features a guest appearance from Lucius’ Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig on the track “You and Me on the Rock.”


    The lead single, “Right on Time,” comes with a video directed by actress Courteney Cox. (Which makes it something of a full-circle moment for the Friends actress who got her big break in Bruce Springsteen’s “Dancing in the Dark” video.) Check out the clip below.

    In These Silent Days will arrive on October 1st via Low Country Sound/Elektra. It marks Carlile’s seventh LP to date, and the follow-up to her Grammy Award-winning 2018 album, By the Way, I Forgive You. In 2019, she teamed up with Amanda Shires, Maren Morris, and Natalie Hemby as The Highwomen for the release of a self-titled album.

    To promote the release, Carlile will head out on an extensive tour beginning this weekend in New York City. Snag tickets to her upcoming dates via Ticketmaster or the secondary market.
