Big Thief share two new songs

Listen to ‘Little Things’ and ‘Sparrow’ now.

Spoiling us today, Big Thief have shared two brand new songs, ‘Little Things’ and ‘Sparrow’, marking their first new material since 2019 album ‘Two Hands’.

Produced by Big Thief’s drummer James Krivchenia, he says of ‘Little Things’, “It’s in this sort of evolving free time signature where the beat is always changing, so Max [Oleartchik, bassist] and I were just flowing with it and guessing where the downbeats were - which gives the groove a really cool light feeling.”

“We all just scattered about the room without headphones, focused and in the music - you could feel that something special was happening,” he adds about making ‘Sparrow’. “It was a funny instrumentation that had a really cool natural arrangement chemistry - Max on piano, Buck [Meek, guitarist/vocalist] providing this dark ambience, me on floor tom and snare and Adrianne in the middle of it with the acoustic and singing.”
