Earlier this year, Big Thief released their third studio album, U.F.O.F., exciting fans and critics alike. That excitement was doubled, however, with the surprise announcement of its follow-up, Two Hands, due out October 11th. Environment plays a big part in the album, as Adrianne Lenker tells Kyle Meredith, not just the alarming news we’re faced with, but also in the way the people who inhabit these songs spend their day within it. Elsewhere in the interview, she also talks about performing the album in full at an early London gig and teases some fan favorites yet to be released.
