Big Thief – “Simulation Swarm”

Alexa Viscius

Next month brings the much-hyped Big Thief double album, Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe In You. We’ve heard a bunch of tracks from the album so far, including “Little Things,” “Sparrow,” “Certainty,” “Change,” “Time Escaping,” “Spud Infinity,” and “No Reason.” Today, we’re getting another one called “Simulation Swarm,” which fans might remember hearing when lead singer Adrianne Lenker previewed it via Instagram last February.

Additionally, after announcing that many of their upcoming tour EU tour dates would need to be rescheduled, the band has outlined their updated dates for 2022. Check out the new rundown, and listen to the gorgeous, urgent “Simulation Swarm” below.
