UK-born, NYC-based singer-songwriter Fenne Lily has announced her third LP, Big Picture, due out via Dead Oceans on April 14 (pre-order). Big Picture documents the time since her 2020 album BREACH, as Fenne explains: “Writing this album was my attempt at bringing some kind of order to the disaster that was 2020. By documenting the most vulnerable parts of that time, I felt like I reclaimed some kind of autonomy.”

Fenne recorded and produced the album alongside Brad Cook in his Durham, NC, studio. It also features guitar by frequent Phoebe Bridgers collaborator Christian Lee Hutson, guest vocals from Katy Kirby, and it was mixed by Jay Som's Melina Duterte. Check out the album art and tracklist below.

The first taste of Big Picture comes from single "Lights Light Up," a swaying, lightly melancholic ballad. “I’d never really written about love in the present tense before this, but even though I was still in love and not thinking about the end, there was something else going on subconsciously that led to a song about moving on before the moving on had begun,” Fenne says of the song. Watch the video below.

Fenne has also announced a co-headlining North American tour with Christian Lee Hutson, following a solo run in the UK and Europe. The stateside tour runs through May and June, and you can see all dates below.

The tour includes a Brooklyn show on June 2 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets go on sale Friday, January 20 at 10 AM.
