Brandi Carlile’s new song “Sugartooth” is premiering today (watch a live performance of the song filmed at RCA Studio A HERE / listen to audio only HERE).

“Sugartooth” is the third track unveiled from Carlile’s highly anticipated new album By The Way, I Forgive You, which will be released February 16 and is now available for pre-order. Produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb and acclaimed musician Shooter Jennings, the album is Carlile’s first release in partnership with Cobb’s Low Country Sound imprint at Elektra Records.

In celebration of the album, the band will embark on an extensive nationwide tour this year including shows at Vancouver’s Commodore Ballroom (sold out), Seattle’s Moore Theatre (two nights, both sold out), New York’s Beacon Theatre (three nights), Boston’s Orpheum Theatre (two nights, first night sold out), Chicago’s Chicago Theatre and Denver’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre. All concert tickets are now on sale. See below for details.

Recorded at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A, By The Way, I Forgive You includes ten new songs written by Carlile and longtime collaborators and bandmates Tim and Phil Hanseroth. Of their close relationship, Brandi comments, “The Twins and I have been in a band for so long now. And not just a band, we are literally a family. When you create art with twins, it becomes unclear when I end and where they begin.” In addition to Carlile (vocals, guitar, piano), Tim Hanseroth (vocals, bass), Phil Hanseroth (vocals, guitar), Cobb (guitar, percussion) and Jennings (piano, organ), the album features Chris Powell (drums), Josh Neumann (cello), John Mark Painter (French horn) as well as string arrangements and conducting by the late Paul Buckmaster (Elton John, The Rolling Stones).
