Brandi Carlile Shares ‘The Things I Regret’ Music Video

Brandi Carlile has released a music video for her song “The Things I Regret.” The clip was filmed during a performance at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado and features shots of Carlile and her band playing to a sold-out crowd.

“The Things I Regret” comes off of Carlile’s 2015 album, The Firewatcher’s Daughter, which was nominated for Best Americana Album at the 2016 Grammy Awards. Though she lost the category to Jason Isbell, Carlile’s first-ever Grammys nod was a well-earned recognition for the project, which is mostly made up of first takes, recorded without much rehearsal time.

“We took SO many different approaches in the studio and the lead-up to it. I’d say the biggest shift that resulted in us really rocking had to do with the fact that we didn’t make any demos,” Carlile says. “To me, rock ‘n’ roll isn’t really a genre but more of recklessness or a risk … The more something gets ironed out and sure of itself, the less it begins to rock somehow.”

The singer has shared her time onstage with twin brothers Phil and Tim Hanseroth for over a decade. The brothers serve as much more than just backup for Carlile, making major contributions to her band’s energy and sound.

“I came from a deep country background, listening to Little River Band and Oak Ridge Boys and Alabama and the Judds. The boys had come up listening to a lot of punk rock, but also a lot of Beatles and Beach Boys. We were all secretly loving that harmony sound, which no one in Seattle was doing at the time,” Carlile tells Rolling Stone Country. “We’d hide out in my living room, practicing those harmonies together, and that’s what our bond was formed on. Then we’d go out and do our gigs and not do the harmonies, because no one wanted to hear them at the time.”

The Firewatcher’s Daughter is available for download via iTunes and Amazon.
