Big Thief released their debut album, Masterpiece, in May 2016, and their sophomore album, Capacity, in June 2017, both via Saddle Creek. Now Big Thief’s singer/songwriter/guitarist Adrianne Lenker has announced a new solo album, abysskiss, and shared its first single, “cradle.” Abysskiss is due out October 5 via Saddle Creek. It was co-produced with Luke Temple (also a solo artist and the frontman of Here We Go Magic) and recorded by Gabe Wax. Check out “cradle” below, followed by the album’s tracklist and cover art.

Lenker had this to say about the album in a press release: “I want to archive the songs in their original forms every few years. My first solo record I made was Hours Were the Bird. I had just turned 21 and moved to New York City where I was sleeping in a warehouse, working in a restaurant and photographing pigeons. Now five years later, another skin is being shed.”

A press release describes the album as such: “With this collection…Lenker further illuminates to the listening public what those close to her already know; here we have a songwriter of the highest order, following her voice and the greater voices that pass through her with an unflinching openness and clarity of translation.”

Note: In the press release the album title and all the songs titles are styled to be lowercase.
