In Big Thief’s new single Cattails, Adrianne Lenker’s voice softly hums above a rolling melody, capturing the feelings you experience while traveling home or to meet a good friend. The comforting second single is from the band’s forthcoming album U.F.O.F, which was recorded in rural western Washington in a large cabin-like room. If you happen to be wondering, the second “F” in the title of the new album stands for “Friend.”
“Making friends with the unknown,” says Lenker, “all my songs are about this.”
The much-anticipated new album will be released May 3, 2019.
