Big Thief Share Album 'Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe In You'

US folk angels Big Thief serve up a genre-pushing feast on Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe In You, the band's fifth collection in seven years. Overflowing with warmth and experimentation, the double album was written and recorded in five months across Upstate New York, Topanga Canyon, The Rocky Mountains, and Tucson, Arizona, all in an attempt to document their growth - both as a band and individuals. Of the 45 tracks they came out the other side with, twenty ended up on the final record, featuring moments of gentle psychedelia on the likes of 'Little Things', classic Big Thief rawness on 'Change', and the fiddle-laden joy and spontaneity of 'Spud Infinity'.

Ponder the hard to say (although certainly unique) album title with the help of these words from bassist Max Oleartchik, and enjoy a morning soundtracked by Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe In You...

"Well it’s like, we’re a band, we talk, we have different dynamics, we do the breaths, and then we go on stage and suddenly it feels like we are now on a dragon. And we can’t really talk because we have to steer this dragon."


Big Thief's 'Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe In You' is out now via 4AD.
