While gearing up for the release of Two Hands, their second album of the year, Big Thief have shared a new single called “Forgotten Eyes.”
The visceral track revolves around a rootsy sound, with stripped back, yet textured instrumental lines as frontwoman Adrienne Lenker’s perfectly wailing vocals take the lead. Lenker’s lyricism truly shines on this track, as she sings vulnerable, pained lines like “Forgotten hands are the ones which we choose/ To let go of, but it is no less a bruise/ On the collective arm.”
Listen to “Forgotten Eyes” below.
Two Hands is set for release on October 11th.
