Today's post actually covers the past two weeks. A couple of weeks ago, Brandi Carlile announced her sixth album, By the Way, I Forgive You.
Brandi Carlile was one of the first artists who made me appreciate country music (or alt-country, the name for artists more indebted to '60s and '70s style country than to the modern sound). She's consistently released strong work over 13 years and five albums.
She announced her latest album just shy of two weeks ago. Though her music has always wavered between alt-country, folk, and americana, she describes this album as a "massive change" for her.
By the Way, I Forgive You is set for release on February 16.
