Brandi Carlile announced her new album By the Way, I Forgive You arrives Feb. 16. Digital pre-orders of the new music come with an instant download of the collection’s lead single “The Joke.” New tour dates to support the album start March 3 in Vancouver, BC.
Carlile and her longtime band mates, Phil and Tim Hanseroth, co-wrote the album’s 10 songs. Co-produced by Dave Cobb and Shooter Jennings, the collection was recorded at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A. Chris Powell (drums), Josh Neumann (cello), John Mark Painter (French horn), and the late Paul Buckmaster (string arrangements and conducting) provided additional instrumentation. The album art is an original painting by the Avett Brothers’ Scott Avett.
A digital copy of By the Way, I Forgive You comes with the purchase of concert tickets upon its release. Tickets for the new 2018 shows go on sale Friday and Saturday (Nov. 17-18).
Additionally, $1 from every concert ticket sold will be allocated to Carlile and the Hanseroth twins’ Looking Out Foundation, which supports several nonprofits that serve the arts, community development, women, education, the environment, as well as human and civil rights.
