Right On Time by Brandi Carlile – Song of the Day

Ahead of the release of Brandi Carlile’s highly anticipated new studio album, In These Silent Days, the singer-songwriter, producer and best-selling author has released the album’s first single, Right On Time. It’s our Song of the Day!

The song was recorded at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A with producers Dave Cobb and Shooter Jennings, with its accompanying music video directed by Courteney Cox.

Inspired by the mining of her own history while writing her memoir Broken Horses, In These Silent Days was conceived of while Carlile was quarantined at home with longtime collaborators and band mates Tim and Phil Hanseroth. The ten songs chronicle acceptance, faith, loss and love and channel icons like David Bowie, Freddie Mercury, Elton John and Joni Mitchell.

Of the album, Brandi says, “Never before have the twins and I written an album during a time of such uncertainty and quiet solitude. 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 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.”

In These Silent Days follows Brandi’s 2018 breakthrough GRAMMY Award-winning album, By The Way, I Forgive You. In the years since—in addition to collaborative projects with The Highwomen, Tanya Tucker, Soundgarden, Alicia Keys, Dolly Parton, Barry Gibb, Leslie Jordan, Brandy Clark and more—she has earned six Grammy Awards recognising 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. 

In These Silent Days is due for release on October 1.
