The release adds to yet another monumental year for Carlile, who will make her debut as the musical guest on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” October 23 with host Jason Sudeikis and who was named Artist of the Year at the 2021 Americana Music Association Honors & Awards earlier this week.
“Right On Time” is from Carlile’s highly anticipated new album, In These Silent Days, which will be released next Friday, October 1 via Low Country Sound/Elektra Records (pre-order/pre-save). Inspired by the mining of her own history while writing this year’s #1 New York Times Best Selling memoir Broken Horses (Crown), In These Silent Days was conceived of while Carlile was quarantined at home with Phil and Tim Hanseroth. The ten songs chronicle acceptance, faith, loss and love and channel icons like David Bowie, Freddie Mercury, Elton John and Joni Mitchell—the latter two who, by some sort of cosmic alignment of the stars, have turned out to be close friends in addition to being her biggest heroes and inspirations.
Of “Right On Time,” Billboard praises, “gorgeous… [Carlile] has always had a knack for writing emotionally evocative lyrics—and that certainly remains true of her newest single,” while Stereogum declares, “a tremendous lead single” and NPR Music asserts, “Just when we needed her, Brandi Carlile returns.” Watch the single’s official music video directed by Courteney Cox HERE.
