Big Thief have shared a new song called “Change” alongside details of a North American tour for 2022.

Arriving yesterday (October 6), the latest release follows a string of standalone singles from the New York band this year, including “Little Things”, “Sparrow” and “Certainty”.

Change, like the wind, like the water, like skin/ Change, like the sky, like the leaves, like a butterfly“, Adrianne Lenker delicately sings over a stripped-back acoustic instrumental. Later, she ponders: “Would you stare forever at the sun/ Never watch the moon rising?/ Would you walk forever in the light/ To never learn the secrets of the quiet night?

Big Thief will embark on a North American tour between April and May next year, before taking on festival slots at Barcelona’s Primavera Sound and Berlin’s Tempelhof Sounds in June.

The four piece’s newly announced stint is set to kick off in New York on April 12. Performances will then follow in Montreal, Washington D.C., Chicago, Portland, Los Angeles and other cities.
