Big Thief – “Paul”

Over the past few months, Brooklyn-based band Big Thief have been sharing little bits and pieces from their upcoming debut album Masterpiece, including the title track as well as the emotional “Real Love.” Their latest single “Paul” is probably the group’s most heartbreaking, and, ironically, the most gorgeous release yet, due to Adrianne Lenker’s soft, passionate vocals and swells of glowing guitar, as well as its delicate, yearning lyrics. According to Lenker, the track is more of “a raging internal battle than it is a love song,” which proves to be more apparent as it plays on.

Masterpiece will be released May 27th.
