Big Thief – “Forgotten Eyes”

Next week, Big Thief are releasing Two Hands, the band’s second album of the year following May’s U.F.O.F. They’ve only shared one single from it so far, “Not,” and today the band is back with another track, “Forgotten Eyes.”

It exhibits the more viscerally textural side that they’re displaying on this album, a rootsy and strained song that addresses homelessness and those that slip into the margins: “The wound has no direction/ Everybody needs a home and deserves protection,” Adrienne Lenker sings on it.

Last week, we published a big profile of the band that you should go read if you haven’t already, and you can listen to “Forgotten Eyes” below.
