Adrianne Lenker may be best known as the vocalist and songwriter of Big Thief, but fans of the popular indie band would be remiss to overlook her solo work. The prolific musician will release her next solo album, abysskiss, next month, and while Big Thief will be busy touring this fall, Lenker will tour the new album in early 2019, with a stop at the First Unitarian Church on February 15. Singer-songwriter Luke Temple will open.

Along with the tour announcement, Lenker has also shared a second single from the forthcoming record, which will be released in full October 5 via Saddle Creek. The delicate and acoustic “symbol” is a slightly more uptempo follow-up to the sparse and haunting lead single “cradle,” driven by a guitar melody and Lenker’s distinct vocals. Hear both songs below.

Lenker’s last solo album, Hours Were The Birds, was released on Bandcamp in 2014. Big Thief debuted in 2016 with Masterpiece, and followed it up with last year’s Capacity. Big Thief plays a sold out show at the Church on October 20. Tickets for Lenker’s solo show will go on sale this Friday, Sept. 14. Find more information on the XPN Concert Calendar.
