Big Thief revealed in an interview with MOJO in October that they're releasing a 20-song double album in 2022, and today they've officially announced it. It's called Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe In You and due February 11 via 4AD. Pre-order on double eco-friendly vinyl.

As mentioned in that interview, the album was written while the band quarantined for two weeks in a house in the Vermont woods in July 2020, and it was recorded at Sam Evian's Flying Cloud studio in upstate New York, Jonathan Dixon's Five Star Studio in California with engineer Shawn Everett (The War On Drugs, The Killers, etc), Colorado's Studio in The Clouds with engineer Dom Monks (Nick Cave, Laura Marling), and Tucson, Arizona's Press On with engineer Scott McMicken (of Dr. Dog) and frequent Big Thief collaborator Mat Davidson (of Twain) on pedal steel and fiddle. Big Thief drummer James Krivchenia produced.

The album includes the band's four recently-released singles ("Change," "Little Things," "Sparrow," and "Certainty"), as well as the just-released "Time Escaping." The song was made with prepared acoustic guitars and a heavily percussive backdrop, and it doesn't sound like anything Big Thief have ever released. It's very cool stuff, and you can hear it for yourself below.

As mentioned, Big Thief are going on a North American tour in 2022, including big Brooklyn shows at Kings Theatre on April 15 and 16 with a special guest opener TBA (tickets). All dates are listed below.
