Big Thief's Adrianne Lenker is an admired songwriter meticulously working through a busy life.

"symbol" is the second release from Lenker's forthcoming solo album abysskiss, after announcing the solo project last month with first cut "cradle".

Speaking about the new track, Lenker explains, "While I was resting for a week between tours, 'symbol' came through. I think it was born out of the feeling of wanting to feel at home somewhere amidst the blur of constant travel. Writing it helped me articulate the recognition of a very deep sense of home contained within the warmth of my loved ones and friends made visible in something as simple as a smile."

Lenker's forthcoming record abysskiss was carefully crafted over the past two years while touring with Big Thief.

"symbol" is out now. abysskiss arrives via Saddle Creek on 5 October. Adrianne Lenker embarks on a solo tour of Europe and the US early next year, commencing on 15 January with a performance at London's Union Chapel. Find the full list of tour dates.
