Release Third Single, 'Century' Big Thief

    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.

    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
