Adrianne Lenker

Big Thief’s Adrianne Lenker has announced two new albums: songs and instrumentals are both out on October 23rd via 4AD Records. Listen to the new single “Anything” (from songs) below.

Find physical editions of songs and instrumentals at Rough Trade. The albums were recorded in April after Big Thief’s tour was cut short by the COVID-19 pandemic. She recorded them entirely analogue in a cabin with engineer Philip Weinrobe. “I grew really connected to the space itself,” Lenker said in a statement. “The one room cabin felt like the inside of an acoustic guitar—it was such a joy to hear the notes reverberate in the space.” She continued:

I had a handful of songs that I was planning on recording, but by the time Phil arrived I was on a whole new level of heartsick and the songs were flying through my ears. I was basically lying in the dirt half the time. We went with the flow. A lot of the focus was on getting nourishment from our meals. We cooked directly on the woodstove, and we went on walks to the creek every day to bathe. I’m grateful that this music has come into existence. These songs have helped me heal. I hope that at least in some small way this music can be a friend to you.

Adrianne Lenker’s albums “Songs” and “instrumentals” are out October 23rd, 2020 on 4AD Records.
