Big Thief’s Adrianne Lenker announces two new albums

Big Thief’s Adrianne Lenker has revealed the details of the two solo records that she will be releasing next month.

The two records are titled songs and instrumentals respectively and they have been given a release date of October 23rd through 4AD.

Instrumentals is set to only feature two tracks so it lucks like we will have to wait patiently until the release date to hear anything from that record but Lenker has shared the track ‘anything’ from songs.

On Instagram, Lenker discussed the connection between the records which exist in the same world but maintained they are separate records for a reason. The records were made in April after Big Thief were forced to stop touring for obvious reasons.

“I am very proud of these recordings, though they were born in a time of grief, both personal and as a collective species,” she said.

“It feels strange to try and pair words with the release of music. I don’t know if there is a graceful way to do it in these times. Please, if this is something that you feel you won’t benefit from, just let it pass away. If you could use some support in the form of songs, give it a spin. These songs have helped me heal. I hope that at least in some small way this music can be a friend to you.”
