You can listen to "Cranes in the Sky" below and preorder the 7" here.
Big Joanie will celebrate the release of the single with a socially-distanced, masks-required release show at Thurston Moore's Ecstatic Peace Library record store in London London on August 15. Entry to the event, which will be outdoors, is co-presented by Third Man Records and Daydream Library Series, is free with RSVP -- tickets are very limited, as you might expect and available beginning Tuesday, August 4 at 10 AM BST / 5 AM EDT.
