Big Thief Announce New Album Due October

Big Thief have announced a new album, ‘Two Hands,’ out October 11th via 4AD. They also released the lead single, “Not,” and start their Fall tour tomorrow in Saint-Malo, France.

Big Thief, consisting of Adrianne Lenker, Buck Meek, Max Oleartchik, and James Krivchenia, recorded the new album 30 miles west of El Paso at Sonic Ranch studio.

Two Hands has the songs that I’m the most proud of; I can imagine myself singing them when I’m old,” says Lenker. “Musically and lyrically, you can’t break it down much further than this. It’s already bare-bones.”

TWO HANDS TRACKLIST:
1.Rock And Sing
2. Forgotten Eyes
3. The Toy
4. Two Hands
5. Those Girls
6. Shoulders
7. Not
8. Wolf
9. Replaced
10. Cut My Hair
