Big Thief - Release Third Single, 'Century'
Big Thief : Release Third Single, 'Century'
30th April 2019

Today, Big Thief share ‘Century’, the third single from their forthcoming album U.F.O.F. (out this Friday).  

Following ‘Cattails’ and ‘UFOF’, ‘Century’ finds the band at the height of their powers as musicians, with bassist Max Oleartchik seamlessly intertwining with James Krivchenia's effortless and inventive drumming.  On top of it all, Adrianne Lenker's evocative storytelling draws you in, weaving a tale left to your own devices to interpret.  Closing the song out is a divine guitar solo from Buck Meek, one that leaves you wanting more, if only another few measures.

Listen to 'Century' here.

You can pre-order on limited translucent orange vinyl, standard black vinyl, and CD via 4AD here +

dogs eyes
in the headlights of the driveway
cool autumn rain
bugs died
on your windshield on the freeway
wonder if you’ll be the same centuries flower

and we have the same power
we have the same power
we have the same power
we have the same power 

moth flies
in the window of the kitchen
hang up your coat
cold lips and gold eyes listen
there’s something that i want
you to know
turn on the shower

‘cause we have the same power
we have the same power
we have the same power
we have the same power 

no resolution
no circling dove
still caught
In The Jaw Of Confusion
don’t know what i’d do
for lovebut stay another hour

‘cause we have the same power
we have the same power
we have the same power
we have the same power
