Big Thief have released another song from their new album U.F.O.F. This one’s called “Cattails.” Listen below. They’ve also added tour dates in Detroit, Michigan, Madison, Wisconsin, Santa Ana, California, and Columbus, Ohio. The album is out May 3 via 4AD; the band previously shared the album’s title track. Adrienne Lenker said of the song in a statement:

Cattails came about while we were at the studio in Washington in the
pine forest. Writing it was just one of those electric multicolored
waves of connectivity just sweeping through my body. I stayed up late
finishing the song and the next morning was stomping around playing it
over and over again. We thought why not just record it, so James sat
at the drums and we practiced and by the time we’d finished
practicing, Dom Monks—our engineer—had already sneakily set up mics
and recorded it. It was beautiful that he’d captured it right away
because when James and I were playing it felt like a little portal in
the fabric had opened and we were just flying. Listening back to it
makes me cry sometimes.

Big Thief partnered with with Arcade Fire’s Plus1 to donate $1 from every ticket from their upcoming tour to SAEF, Little Kids Rock, Youth Speaks, DANS LA RUE, Sketch, and the Urban Native Youth Center.
