A new song called 'Time Escaping' is previewing the band's fifth record, out in February via 4AD

Big Thief have announced details of a new 20-track double album – ‘Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe In You’ will come out in February via 4AD.

The record was first touted in a recent interview with vocalist Adrianne Lenker, and is being previewed by new single ‘Time Escaping’, which can be heard below. It follows the band’s two records from 2019, ‘U.F.O.F.’ and ‘Two Hands’.

Discussing the new album, Lenker said: “One of the things that bonds us together as a band is pure magic.

“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.”

Listen to ‘Time Escaping’ below:

‘Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe In You’ has been teased with a number of tracks across 2021. Recently shared singles ‘Little Things, ‘Sparrow’ and ‘Certainty’ will all appear on the forthcoming record, alongside their most recent track, album opener ‘Change’.
