    Big Thief's Adrianne Lenker announces two new albums, songs and instrumentals, out October 23rd on 4AD

    songs and instrumentals are two distinct collections, both written and recorded in April after Big Thief’s March tour was abruptly cut short due to coronavirus. After returning to the states from Europe, Lenker decamped to a one room cabin in the mountains of western Massachusetts.

    This recording is 100% analog-analog-analog (AAA). No digital process was used in the production of this sound recording.

    The album’s stunning artwork are watercolor paintings done by Adrianne’s grandmother, Diane Lee.

    9 of the 11 songs were written while recording. so everything is brand new aside from "two reverse" (two rivers) and "zombie girl" (sleep paralysis)

    "Lenker and Phil began and closed each day with an improvised acoustic guitar instrumental, later making a collage of their favorite pieces, which became the first side of the instrumentals album"

    adrianne: "I’d like to think that at any time you need or want, you can put on ‘instrumentals’ and have the sensation like a friend is playing guitar to you softly in the room."
