Adrianne Lenker of Big Thief has announced a new solo album.

'abysskiss', the follow up to 2014's 'Hours Were The Birds', will arrive on October 5 through Saddle Creek. In a statement, she said:

"I want to archive the songs in their original forms every few years. My first solo record I made was Hours Were the Birds. 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." 

The first single to be shared from the record is Cradle, where finger-picked acoustic guitar accompanies Lenker's measured vocals and a lilting melody. Listen below.

'Abysskiss' tracklist: 

1. terminal paradise
2. from
3. womb
4. out of your mind
5. cradle
6. symbol
7. blue and red horses
8. abyss kiss
9. what can you say
10. 10 miles

Big Thief, meanwhile, released an experimental EP called ‘Wide Winged Bird’ in May. It featured unreleased music alongside field recordings and followed up their sophomore LP, 'Capacity', which came out in 2017.

td#right {display:none !important;} A new year brings with it the chance to look ahead after a few weeks of looking back over our shoulders. In musical terms, we can start to think about the artists who’ll capture our attention on summer festival stages, or during opening slots for existing favourites. We can ponder the singles that’ll leap from radio waves or playlists into the fabric of our day-to-day. Here we’ve assembled 10 artists we believe will make 2019 one to remember—some of them are about to release debut records, others are starting to pound the pavement in support of music that deserve time to shine.

But then we also have bands like Puppy, who are able to cast that whole argument in the comic light it often deserves.
