Big Thief have returned with their incredible new album, the sprawling double LP Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe In You. Listen to the project below.
Their fifth album in as many years, Adrianne Lenker and company recorded Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe In You across four different sessions in Upstate New York, Topanga Canyon, the Rocky Mountains, and Tucson, Arizona, with drummer James Krivchenia handling production. After five months, the quartet came out with 45 songs, which they eventually whittled down to 20.
The final package weaves “songs of healing, pain, joy, and self-discovery after one another,” Consequence’s own Abby Jones writes, in an entrancing collage of folksy guitars, bubbling bass, and electronic drums.
Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe In You is out via 4AD, and features the previously released singles “Simulation Swarm,” “No Reason,” “Spud Infinity,” and “Change.”
In April, the band will embark on a North American tour. Tickets are on sale now via Ticketmaster.
