Big Thief - New Single 'Born For Loving You'
Big Thief : New Single 'Born For Loving You'
13th September 2023

Big Thief is the best band in the world right now and it isn’t particularly close.

Today, Big Thief share a captivating new single, 'Born For Loving You'.   Recorded and produced by Dom Monks at Guissona, Spain’s Teatre de cal Eril Studio on a recent tour.  'Born For Loving You' finds Adrianne Lenker, Buck Meek, James Krivchenia, and Max Oleartchik at their most earnest and unashamedly romantic — “I was born for lovin’ you // Just somethin’ I was made to do.”  It follows the release of live fan favorite and viral anthem, 'Vampire Empire,' which the band debuted live on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert earlier this year.
