Listen to “cradle,” the new track from Big Thief’s Adrianne Lenker
Adrianne Lenker, the vocalist and songwriter for indie trio Big Thief, has announced a new solo album, abyskiss and released the first single, “cradle.”
Capturing Lenker’s rich songwriting in a haunting and intimate folk arrangement, “cradle” is a chilling track that recalls the minimalist dirges of Sun Kil Moon. Talking of the album’s creation, Leneker says she “felt a growing need to document this particular time in her life in an intimate, immediate way.” The album, then, is her “document” of the songs she’s written for herself while touring and recording with Big Thief over the last few years.
