Big Thief released not one but two of the best albums of 2019 and then they followed that this year with an EP of demos from the sessions that produced those albums (as well as Adrianne Lenker's 2018 solo album abyskiss) to benefit their touring crew, and then the standalone single "Love In Mine."
Now, Adrianne has announced two of her own new solo albums, songs and instrumentals, both due out October 23 via 4AD (pre-order). The albums were both written and recorded in April after Big Thief's tour was cut short due to coronavirus, and the first single is "anything" from songs. It features little more than Adrianne's voice, finger-picked acoustic guitar, and minimal percussion courtesy of a shaker, and it's always great to hear Adrianne in this kind of earthy, folky, stripped-down mode. Listen, check out the artwork and tracklists for both albums, and read much more about how this project came to be, below.
