Carlile is currently in the midst of her extensive “Beyond These Silent Days” headline tour

A new deluxe edition of Brandi Carlile’s acclaimed #1 album, In These Silent Days, entitled In The Canyon Haze will be released September 28 on Low Country Sound/Elektra Records. 

Produced by Carlile and the twins, Phil and Tim Hanseroth, and recorded at their home barn studio, the expanded album features new reimagined Laurel Canyon-inspired versions of each song from the original album plus a special rendition of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity.”

In advance of the release, the new version of Carlile’s current single, “You and Me on the Rock (In the Canyon Haze)” featuring her wife, Catherine Carlile, was released late last week.

Carlile and her band made their debut on NBC’s “TODAY Show” last week “Citi Concert Series” performing “Broken Horses” and “You And Me On The Rock” as well as fan favorites, “The Joke” and “The Story.”

In The Canyon Haze is now available for pre-save and CD pre-order. A limited-edition deluxe vinyl will be available exclusively at indie retail starting Friday, November 25 and everywhere you buy music the following Friday, December 2.

“I knew I wanted to offer our fans more than just the usual ‘bonus track’ that always feels like a creative way to ask fans to buy your album twice,” Carlile said. “So, the twins and I locked ourselves in the attic studio in my barn just like the old days…and we reimagined our entire record.”

Carlile is currently in the midst of her extensive “Beyond These Silent Days” headline tour with upcoming shows at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre (two nights), Boston’s TD Garden and New York’s Madison Square Garden among many others.

In These Silent Days was inspired by the mining of Carlile’s own history while writing last year’s #1 New York Times Best Selling memoir, Broken Horses (Crown).

Of the album, Variety praises, “Carlile effortlessly glides between octaves while, somehow, still sounding completely conversational—the everyday diva we didn’t know we needed until she showed up at our door…a vocal tour de force,” while Billboard asserts, “the emotion that Carlile projects is unbridled, unfettered joy in the face of hard times—and it’s the exact boost of positivity that will make you want to listen again and again” and Vulture declares, “one of the biggest voices in the genre.”

The album also appeared on “Best of 2021” lists at NPR Music, VarietyRolling StoneBillboardEntertainment Weekly, SPIN, USA Today, Stereogum and many more.

In the months since the release, the six-time Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, performer, producer and New York Times Best Selling author made her debut as the musical guest on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” (performing “Broken Horses” and “Right On Time”), returned to “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” to guest host and debut “You And Me On The Rock,” and debuted “This Time Tomorrow” on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”

She also performed “Right On Time” during the 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards earlier this year, where the song was nominated for Record of the Year and Song of the Year. Additionally, this past November, Carlile performed Mitchell’s legendary album Blue in its entirety at Carnegie Hall.

In These Silent Days follows Carlile’s 2018 breakthrough GRAMMY Award-winning album, By The Way, I Forgive You, which Rolling Stone declared, “…an Adele-meets Joni Mitchell tour de force.” 

In the years since—in addition to collaborative projects with Elton John, The Highwomen, Tanya Tucker, Soundgarden, Alicia Keys, Dolly Parton, Barry Gibb, Leslie Jordan, Brandy Clark and more—she has earned six Grammy Awards recognizing her work as a performer, songwriter and producer, was awarded Billboard’s Women In Music “Trailblazer Award,” CMT’s Next Women of Country “Impact Award” and received multiple recognitions from the Americana Music Association Honors & Awards including 2021’s Artist of the Year, 2020’s Album of the Year (Highwomen), Group of the Year (The Highwomen) and Song of the Year (“Crowded Table”) and 2019’s Artist of the Year. Moreover, the audiobook version of Carlile’s memoir was recently highlighted as one of Libro.fm’s top 10 bestselling audiobooks of 2021.

In addition to their work as a band, Carlile and the Hanseroth twins remain committed to social activism and advocacy.

Together they are founders of the Looking Out Foundation, which amplifies the impact of music by empowering those without a voice with varied initiatives including campaigns focused on Children in Conflict/War Child, The IF Project, Fund Racial Justice and more. To date, they have raised over $3 million for grassroots causes.
