Adrianne Lenker, vocalist for earthy indie band Big Thief, evidently hasn't seen her cascading creativity and tireless work ethic dampened throughout the pandemic, having announced two solo albums both set for release this Autumn; songs + instrumentals, written and recorded after Big Thief's spring tour was cut short, is set for release on 23rd October via 4AD. 

After relocating to an isolated cabin in the mountains of Massachusetts, the scene was set for the new collection of songs to bloom, all of which are intimate and improvisational in nature. Lenker enlisted the assistance of engineer Philip Weinrobe to lay each take on a modest set-up of tape recorders, retaining an entirely analogue process. 

Of the organic, therapeutic albums, Lenker says: "Iā€™m grateful that this music has come into existence. These songs have helped me heal. I hope that at least in some small way this music can be a friend to you.ā€

Alongside the double album announcement, Lenker has revealed the gorgeous first single 'anything' - listen below:

songs + instrumentals is out via 4AD on 23rd October.
