Big Thief have returned with the new single ‘Cattails’ which will feature on the band’s upcoming album, U.F.O.F.

The new record, which will be released on May 3rd via 4AD, is the eagerly anticipated follow-up their 2017 effort, Capacity, which appeared in Far Out’s top 50 albums of 2017.

“Cattails came about while we were at the studio in Washington in the pine forest,” Big Thief’s singer Adrianne Lenker explained in a press release. Writing it was just one of those electric multicolored waves of connectivity just sweeping through my body. I stayed up late finishing the song and the next morning was stomping around playing it over and over again.

“We thought why not just record it, so James sat at the drums and we practiced and by the time we’d finished practicing, Dom Monks – our engineer – had already sneakily set up mics and recorded it. It was beautiful that he’d captured it right away because when James and I were playing it felt like a little portal in the fabric had opened and we were just flying. Listening back to it makes me cry sometimes.”
