Emerging Brooklyn-based four-piece Big Thief have shared another lovely track from their forthcoming debut full-length, Masterpiece. Their latest offering Paul follows the previously shared album tracks Real Love, Humans and the track Masterpiece. When asked to share the meaning behind the track, singer, songwriter, and guitarist Adrianne Lenker shared this:
“The future self came and told me the whole story. The ghost of relationship future wrote that song. Looking at heartbreak before it happens, after it happened. It looked like an old film in my head. Some images I included in the song, and others still exist only in my imagination whenever I play it. Snow, a drive-in, soft glowing street lamps, soft lips, wounds, sharing a bottle in a train yard. It’s more of a song about a raging internal battle than it is a love song.”
Big Thief release their debut full-length Masterpiece on May 27 through Saddle Creek Records.
