Big Thief Shares The Jaunty But Calm ‘Simulation Swarm’ And Reschedules Some Tour Dates

Big Thief has a big album with a big title coming out soon: The 20-track Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe In You is set for release on February 11. Ahead of that, the group was set to begin a European tour at the end of January, but now plans have changed: Big Thief has rescheduled those tour dates, moving them to June and July.

The good news, though, is that they softened the blow of that news by sharing a new track today, “Simulation Swarm.” It’s an upbeat tune that’s grounded in a relaxing place by Adrianne Lenker’s idiosyncratic and gentle vocals.

Listen to “Simulation Swarm” above and find Big Thief’s full updated list of upcoming tour dates below.
