Brandi Carlile has returned with details of a forthcoming album, In These Silent Days. The singer-songwriter’s first LP since 2018’s By The Way, I Forgive You, is out on October 1st via Low Country Sound/Elektra Records.

Carlile recorded In These Silent Days at Nashville’s RCA Studio A with producers Dave Cobb and Shooter Jennings. The album finds her once again joined by her musical partners “The Twins,” Tim Hanseroth (vocals, bass) and Phil Hanseroth (vocals, guitar). Additional personnel included Cobb (guitar, percussion), Jennings (piano, organ, synth), Chris Powell (drums, percussion), and Josh Neumann (strings). In These Silent Days also hosts guest contributions from Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig of Lucius, who add backing vocals to “You And Me On The Rock”.

“Never before have the twins and I written an album during a time of such uncertainty and quiet solitude,” Carlile said in a statement. “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 [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.”

“Right On Time” Lyrics

Come back now, even if you call me out
You might be angry now, of course you are
I’m scared too, didn’t mean to take it out on you
I know I always do, you’re the strongest person in the room
Turn back time
Help me to rewind and we can find ourselves again
It’s not too late
Either way, I lose you in these silent days
It wasn’t right, but it was right on time
Don’t look down, I can feel it when your heart starts pounding
It’s beyond your control, you know it is
It’s getting to the point where I can’t carry on
I never held my breath for quite thislong
And I don’t take it back, I did what I had to do
It’s not too late
Either way, I lose you in these silent days
It wasn’t right, but it was right on time.
