    Just a day after confirming that they have a 20-track double-album in the works, Big Thief revealed what is presumably another of those songs: “Change.”

    The new single follows previous recent releases “Certainty,” “Little Things,” and “Sparrow.” The intimate campfire song, with its loose snare sounding like it’s being played on drummer James Krivchenia’s lap, is a song of lost love. “Could I feel happy for you/ When I hear you talk with her like we used to?” sings Adrianne Lenker. “Could I set everything free When I watch you holding her the way you once held me?”

    Along with the new single, Big Thief have revealed a fresh round of North American tour dates. The 2022 trek launches April 12th in Ithaca, New York and makes its way through Brooklyn, Montreal, Toronto, Cleveland, Chicago, St. Paul, Denver, Seattle, and Oakland. Along the way are two-night stands in Portland, Oregon and Los Angeles. Tickets to all their upcoming gigs go on sale Friday, October 8th via Ticketmaster.

    All this news comes after the band revealed in a recent interview that they’re finishing the follow-up to last year’s Two Hands/U.F.O.F. one-two punch. Recorded largely during a two-week quarantine in the Vermont woods back in July 2020, the new collection is said to be a double-album featuring 20 tracks. “We accumulated so many songs that we loved, maybe about 50,” said Lenker. “20 could be whittled down to 12, but not 50.”
