Brandi Carlile checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@brandicarlileband) on Monday (August 17), talking about the upcoming release of her third studio album ‘Give Up The Ghost’, out October 6th via Sony Music. The Seattle based singer songwriter tells readers:
I just wanted to send out a message about our new album ‘Give Up The Ghost’.
It’s been a totally unique experience for us. As some of you know, we recorded ‘The Story’ in under two weeks, where as this record took more than a year. They say that it takes you your whole life to write your first record and then you have to write your second in a matter of months.
Well if this is so then to give up the ghost is to make a transition from one life to the next and transcend time in order to grow. This is to say that the songs on this record are time travelers instead of glimpses into the present and onto the road.
Brandi Carlile checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@brandicarlileband) on Tuesday (February 10), talking about her participation in the annual Cayamo Cruise. The singer songwriter tells readers:
I’m hanging out on a quick vacation in Tucson (one of my favorite cities) and I’m getting ready to set sail again on the Cayamo Cruise!
Last year was an amazing experience for me. I left there so inspired… I never really stopped going to shows until about 1 or 2 in the morning every night and even then I would just go sit down at the piano in the bar and play Beatles covers…
Brandi Carlile checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@brandicarlileband) on Sunday (August 10), discussing her participation in a new ad campaign with General Motors. The Seattle singer songwriter said:
While we are gone you may have already heard our song “The Story” in an Olympic advertisement for GM. Depending on how you feel about music and advertising in general, you may be wondering why a band like us would do something like this. Well I have a few good reasons, so allow me to shine a little light on the subject.
When GM first approached our band to use “The Story” in their 2008 Olympic ad visions of SUVs and full-size pick-up trucks driving through a rugged mountain range were dancing through my head. I promptly and politely declined. (Although I don’t want to be a hypocrite, our band did tour in a GM gas-guzzling van for many years) But, when they came back to us and offered to involve us in an ad campaign promoting hybrids, bio fuel, bio hybrids, hydrogen fuel cell cars and yes, even the infamous electric car the Chevy Volt, I felt the need to think twice about having the opportunity to be a part of a huge American car company creating an ad campaign for environmentally responsible cars. We feel they allowed more than a fair amount of input from us and made an honest effort to create an environmentally conscious ad. We are proud of it.
