Big Thief have released a new single/video entitled “Certainty.” The track was written and recorded during a three-day power outage while recording at Sam Evian’s Flying Cloud Studios and features harmonies from Hannah Cohen. Big Thief are hitting the road for a world tour, which kicks off on September 7, 2020 in Louisville, KY.

“On the third day of the outage, I found Adrianne on the porch writing a new song, so I sat with her and we finished it together, with the rain falling from the gutters splashing over our guitars,” says Buck Meek. “James and Sam saw us writing, and quickly set up a four-track tape machine in the kitchen, powered by the F250 cigarette lighter out in the yard. They set up the drums by the sink, and Max plugged his bass into a Bluetooth speaker set on top of the stove. Take 2 had a great bark from Sam and Hannah’s pup Jan during the solo, but we ended up going with take 3 because it took us about that long to learn the chords. Then we made pancakes and sausages and ate breakfast for dinner.”
