Adrianne Lenker announces two new solo albums ‘songs’ and ‘instrumentals’

Listen to ‘anything’, the lead single from ‘songs’ now.

Big Thief’s Adrianne Lenker has announced that she has two brand new solo albums, ‘songs’ and ‘instrumentals’, arriving on 23rd October!

Written and recorded after The Big Thief’s March tour was cut short due to coronavirus, Adrianne headed to a small cabin in Western Massachusetts where she was joined by engineer Philip Weinrobe.

“We wanted to make a record that put you, the listener, in the most intimate position possible,” explains Philip. “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,” Adrianne adds. “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.”
