Brandi Carlile will release her new album Give Up The Ghost on October 6, 2009, which features Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers multi-instrumentalist Benmont Tench, and drummer Chad Smith and Amy Ray of The Indigo Girls.


Carlile also had the chance to work with her idol Elton John who duets with her on the song Caroline. “I’ve been listening to country and western music my whole life and I was totally immersed in Grand Ole Opry culture, wherein the entertainers are usually not the ones who wrote the music. But when I was 11 and discovered Elton John, I realized that performers do write and perform their own songs, and I immediately went out and got a keyboard and started writing.”

Carlile will begin touring nationwide in September to promote the new album.
