The track is taken from the group’s upcoming 20-track new double album ‘Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe In You’, which is set for release on February 11 via 4AD.
While the latest release is a staple of the band’s live shows and a fan favourite, the song has never been released previously.
Listen to it below:
“One of the things that bonds us together as a band is pure magic,” lead vocalist Adrianne Lenker said in a statement recently about ‘Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe In You’.
“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.”
