Stream: Big Thief drop new album ‘Two Hands,’ perform ‘Not’ on ‘Colbert’

The new record marks their second album of 2019

After releasing U.F.O.F. in May, Big Thief have released their second album of 2019 with Two Hands.

The new album was recorded almost entirely live in a studio in the desert. “Two Hands has the songs that I’m the most proud of; I can imagine myself singing them when I’m old,” frontwoman Adrianne Lenker explains in a statement. “Musically and lyrically, you can’t break it down much further than this. It’s already bare-bones.”

On top of the new record, Big Thief took to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night where they delivered an intimate performance of “Not.”

Stream Two Hands and watch Big Thief perform “Not” below.
