Adrianne Lenker of Big Thief has shared a new solo track.

Symbol will appear on 'abysskiss', the follow up to 2014's 'Hours Were The Birds', which is due out on October 5. Similar to the record's first single, Cradle, the song is led by a finger-picked guitar, though Lenker's vocals are more forthright here. She said:

"While I was resting for a week between tours, 'symbol' came through. I think it was born out of the feeling of wanting to feel at home somewhere amidst the blur of constant travel. Writing it helped me articulate the recognition of a very deep sense of home contained within the warmth of my loved ones and friends made visible in something as simple as a smile."

The singer-songwriter will support the album with a solo tour in 2019, which will begin with three dates in the UK and Ireland. She will call in London, Dublin and Manchester on January 15, 16 and 17 respectively, before heading to Europe and then North America. Tickets go on sale from 9am on September 14.

Adrianne Lenker Upcoming Tour Dates are as follows

Tue January 15 2019 - LONDON Union Chapel
Wed January 16 2019 - DUBLIN Button Factory
Thu January 17 2019 - MANCHESTER YES

Fri 12 Oct 2018
Music critics are often guilty of presenting rock's history as linear. Progressive rock emerged out of pop music and psychedelia in the late 1960s but was ultimately killed off by punk in the late 1970s, so the narrative goes. Punk, with its raw sound and DIY ethic, was also a better vehicle for voicing social and political issues than prog, which was considered more escapist and lyrically concerned with “high culture”.
Cool With The Bargain Bin: Mike Pace Investigates The Pop Form On 'Smooth Sailing'
Thu 04 Oct 2018
A few weekends ago there was a sale at a record shop in the next town over. Their stock list had ballooned, taking over a small warehouse space on a suburban street. Pretty much everything had to go, and it was going cheap. The bargain bin has no respect for reputation, so nestled among the trashy cock rock LPs were rough diamonds and certified gems; ambitious works that shifted serious units and ambitious works that were chalked up to folly back when labels were paying for things like that.

There won’t be many musicians with an address book as impressive as Doyle Bramhall II’s. From Elton John and Roger Waters to Sheryl Crow and Alain Toussaint, not to mention his position as Eric Clapton’s right-hand man for nearly two decades, the Texan born singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer has often been the go-to collaborator for some of the greatest names in the business. Such a role inevitably meant putting his own career on hold, but with the release of ‘Shades’ – his second solo album in two years - he’s finally taking centre stage.

Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus were pictured together, draped moodily on a sofa. Looking suspiciously like the sleeve image from Crosby, Stills and Nash’s self-titled bow, the word ‘Boygenius’ ran below them, as well as that all-important stamp of approval from Matador Records. Speculation bubbled. Rumours were whispered.
