The official music video for Brandi Carlile’s new single, “You And Me On The Rock,” is debuting today. Watch the video, which was created, animated and directed by Computer Team above.
Of the song, Carlile reflects, “This song is for my wife, Catherine. When life changed during quarantine and everything that I identify myself by went away, I was left with a question of ‘is what I’ve built my life on really a solid foundation?’ I wrote this song and realized that even the most intensely self-identifying things can go away, but what my life is really built on, which is faith and my family, it’s a rock, and it’s solid.”
“You And Me On The Rock” is from Carlile’s #1 album, In These Silent Days, which is out now via Low Country Sound/Elektra Records.
In celebration of the record, Carlile is currently in the midst of her “Beyond These Silent Days” headline tour with upcoming shows at Nashville’s Ascend Amphitheater. BUY TICKETS HERE. Special guests featured on the tour include Allison Russell, Ani DiFranco, Brittany Howard, Celisse, Indigo Girls, Katie Pruitt, Lake Street Dive, Lucius, Sarah McLachlan, Brittney Spencer, Tanya Tucker and Yola.
Produced by Dave Cobb and Shooter Jennings, In These Silent Days was inspired by the mining of Carlile’s own history while writing last year’s #1 New York Times Best Selling memoir, Broken Horses (Crown). Conceived of while she was quarantined at home with longtime collaborators and bandmates 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—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.
