Back in April, I did a quick deep dive into the six album releases by Brandi Carlile. At the time, her next album had been teased but not announced. Well, it arrived this month.
In These Silent Days is Carlile’s first album since the widely celebrated 2018 release By the Way, I Forgive You. That album won multiple Grammys and led to a star-making live performance on the award show’s main stage. Since then, Carlile has penned a best-selling memoir, befriended and performed a tribute to Joni Mitchell, and palled around with the Obamas.
