The album was recorded almost entirely live in the scorching, arid desert. “Two Hands has the songs that I’m the most proud of; I can imagine myself singing them when I’m old,” Big Thief's Adrianne Lenker wrote in a press release. “Musically and lyrically, you can’t break it down much further than this. It’s already bare-bones.”
To celebrate the release of the album, Big Thief performed "Not" on The Late Show on Thursday night. You can check out their performance belowm alongside a stream of Two Hands.
