Big Thief explore a new sound on new single ‘Time Escaping,’ detail forthcoming album

Big Thief have shared a new single called “Time Escaping.” The track comes on the heels of the announcement of their fifth studio album, Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe in You.

The forthcoming project clocks in at a whopping 20 tracks. Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe in You was recorded in Upstate New York, Topanga Canyon, The Rocky Mountains, and Tucson, Arizona. Each location brought out a different sound from the band, which allowed them to explore new sonic territory.

You can hear that exploration on their new single, “Time Escaping.” Revolving around a peculiar, warping percussion, Big Thief channel a grittier sound on this tune. The band is at their most playful, with experimental instrumentals and silky vocal lines.

Listen to “Time Escaping” below.

“One of the things that bonds us together as a band is pure magic,” Big Thief’s Adrianne Lenker explains. “I think we all have the same guide and none of us have ever spoken what it is because we couldn’t name it, but somehow, we are all going for the same thing, and when we hit it… we all know it’s it, but none of us to this day, or maybe ever, will be able to articulate in words what the ‘it’ is. Something about it is magic to me.”

“Time Escaping” follows previously released singles “Change,” “Little Things,” “Sparrow,” and “Certainty.” All of those tracks will appear on the new album, out February 11th, 2022 via 4AD.
