Not only will her two new solo albums, songs and instrumentals, be released later this month, but she has also started the month off with a new single.
“dragon eyes” is a softer tune where the Big Thief singer and guitarist’s vocals float over acoustic guitar. “I just want a place with you / I just want a place,” she sings.
Aside from “dragon eyes,” Lenker previously released “anything.” While everyone quarantined in New York City, she went up to a cabin in Western Massachusetts to record songs and instrumentals.
“I’m grateful that this music has come into existence,” she said in a statement. “These songs have helped me heal. I hope that at least in some small way this music can be a friend to you.”
Listen to “dragon eyes” below.
Songs and instrumentals are out on Oct. 23 via 4AD. Preorder them here.
