Brandi Carlile Release Acoustic Remake Of ‘In These Silent Days’

Taylor Swift isn’t the only one re-recording fairly new albums. Now Brandi Carlile has, albeit for very different reasons than those that prompted Swift to revisit her catalog. Carlile has gone back into the studio to rework last year’s “In These Silent Days” in its entirety into a new, acoustically focused version entitled “In the Canyon Haze”.

The re-recorded album will be released on September 28th and is preceded today by “You and Me on the Rock (In the Canyon Haze)”, a remake featuring her wife Catherine Carlile on harmony vocals.

Carlile said the project came about when she was planning to release a deluxe edition of “Silent Days” for the album’s upcoming anniversary with bonus tracks, but decided on a way to make the entire album a bonus. The “Canyon” part alludes to how the artist thinks the reissue aims for a vintage Laurel Canyon spirit in the reconfigured arrangements.

The new album follows the original album’s order exactly, except for an acoustic cover of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity,” which she often performs in concert, which is marked at the end.

“I knew I wanted to offer our fans more than just the usual ‘bonus track,’ which always feels like a creative way to ask fans to buy your album twice,” she said in a statement. “So the twins (Phil and Tim Hanseroth) and I locked ourselves in the attic studio of my barn like old times… and we reinvented our entire record.”

Citing the “Joni Jams” she attended at her famous friend’s home in the Santa Barbara area, Carlile said she “conjured up images from the infamous Laurel Canyon music scene … I could take the cast of California Dreamers with me.” embroidered flowers and see peace signs on their backs drifting through a Polaroid haze. I could smell the marijuana and incense. I could hear the CSN harmonies traveling through the canyon from Lookout Mountain and the accompanying laughter of Mama Cass. I could hear the reverberation of aged wood and the dulcimer beating like a drum. The familiar chord progressions, confessions and community spirit that would produce timeless songs… songs we all wish we had written. I could feel the release, the friction, and the freedom from modern day digital distractions that provided such fertile ground for West Coast poets and troubadours.”

While the digital and CD versions will be released on September 28th, a multicolored double LP vinyl version will wait until November 25th, at which point it will only be available in indie stores – coinciding with Black Friday -Output of Record Store Tag. The vinyl will be available in bulk the following Friday, December 2nd. Pre-order details can be found here.

Carlile continues to tour behind the original album, In These Silent Days, with her upcoming sold out dates September 9-10 at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado. The tour concludes October 22 at New York’s Madison Square Garden.

The singer-songwriter will also perform at the Americana Honors & Awards ceremony in Nashville on September 14, where she will be competing for three awards. Brandi Carlile Release Acoustic Remake Of ‘In These Silent Days’
