News Big Thief to release new album ‘U.F.O.F.’ this May
It’s their first for new home 4AD.
Big Thief are to release a new album in May.
‘U.F.O.F’ will be out on 3rd May, and features track ‘UFOF’, shared today.
F, the band explains, stands for friend. “Making friends with the unknown… All my songs are about this,” says Lenker. “If the nature of life is change and impermanence, I’d rather be uncomfortably awake in that truth than lost in denial.”
The album was recorded at Bear Creek Studios in rural Washington, with engineer Dom Monks and producer Andrew Sarlo. It is the follow-up to 2017’s ‘Capacity’.
The track listing for ‘U.F.O.F’ is:
The band play a handful of live dates in the UK and Ireland this spring.
18 Leeds Brudenell Social Club
19 Glasgow SWG3
21 Dublin Vicar Street
22 Manchester Ritz
23 London Roundhouse
24 Bristol SWX
