Brandi Carlile’s debuts new music video for “You And Me On The Rock”

The album chronicles acceptance, faith, loss and love, and channel icons like David Bowie, Freddie Mercury, Elton John and Joni Mitchell.

The official music video for Brandi Carlile’s new single, “You And Me On The Rock,” from her widely acclaimed #1 album, In These Silent Days, is debuting this week.

NPR Music described the track as, “a heartwarming ode to domesticity, with gently strummed acoustic guitar and a mellifluous vocal reminiscent of Carlile’s friend [Joni] Mitchell.”

“This song is for my wife, Catherine,” Carlile said. “When life changed during quarantine and everything that I identify myself by went away, I was left with a question of ‘is what I’ve built my life on really a solid foundation?”

“I wrote this song and realized that even the most intensely self-identifying things can go away, but what my life is really built on, which is faith and my family, it’s a rock, and it’s solid,” she said.
Carlile is currently in the midst of her extensive

“Beyond These Silent Days” headline tour with upcoming shows at Nashville’s Ascend Amphitheater (two nights), Austin’s Moody Amphitheater, Chicago’s Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island, Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre (two nights) and New York’s Madison Square Garden among many others.

Special guests featured on the tour include Allison Russell, Ani DiFranco, Brittany Howard, Celisse, Indigo Girls, Katie Pruitt, Lake Street Dive, Lucius, Sarah McLachlan, Brittney Spencer, Tanya Tucker and Yola.

Produced by Dave Cobb and Shooter Jennings, In These Silent Days chronicles acceptance, faith, loss and love, and channel icons like David Bowie, Freddie Mercury, Elton John and Joni Mitchell.
Released to overwhelming acclaim, the album appeared on “Best of 2021” lists at NPR Music, Variety, Rolling Stone, Billboard, Entertainment Weekly, SPIN, USA Today, and Stereogum.

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.

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.

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.
