Big Thief Drop New Single ‘Not,’ Detail Second 2019 LP ‘Two Hands’

Brooklyn band’s fourth LP follows critically-acclaimed U.F.O.F., which arrived in May

A mere three months after the release of their critically-acclaimed album U.F.O.F., Big Thief have announced a second LP for 2019. Two Hands will be released on October 11th via 4AD and its led by the scorching single “Not.”

Recorded 30 miles outside El Paso at Sonic Ranch Studio — surrounded by 3,000 acres of pecan orchards — the Brooklyn band called Two Hands “the earth twin” to its sister record U.F.O.F., known as “the celestial twin” (that LP was recorded in a cabin in the woods of Washington State). The new album was recorded live with almost no overdubs, giving it a raw desert feel.

Two Hands has the songs that I’m the most proud of; I can imagine myself singing them when I’m old,” singer Adrianne Lenker said in a statement. “Musically and lyrically, you can’t break it down much further than this. It’s already bare-bones.”

A limited edition version of the record, pressed in peach-colored vinyl, is available for pre-order.

Two Hands Tracklist:
1. “Rock And Sing”
2. “Forgotten Eyes”
3. “The Toy”
4. “Two Hands”
5. “Those Girls”
6. “Shoulders”
7. “Not”
8. “Wolf”
9. “Replaced”
10. “Cut My Hair”
