Earlier this month, Brandi Carlile released her seventh album, In These Silent Days. It’s a body of work that the singer created during the early days of the coronavirus pandemic. More than a year removed from that time, Carlile brought her talents to Saturday Night Live. During her appearance on the late-night show, she performed “Broken Horses” and “Right On Time” from her new album. This moment on SNL for Carlile was a long-awaited one as it comes nearly two decades into her career.
In These Silent Days is the follow-up to Carlile’s 2018 album, By The Way, I Forgive You. Prior to releasing her seventh full-length release, Carlile shared her feeling about the album once it was complete.
“Never before have the twins [Elton John and Joni Mitchell] and I written an album during a time of such uncertainty and quiet solitude,” she said. “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.”
In total, In These Silent Days comes complete with ten songs and a single guest feature from Lucius who appears on “You And Me On The Rock.”
