Brooklyn, New York’s own, Big Thief has released their music video for “Mythological Beauty,” directed by Vanessa Haddad and filmed by Adam Gundersheimer. Big Thief’s forthcoming LP is titled Capacity (11 tracks) and “Mythological Beauty” is their first single, which was released on April 5th along with the accompanying music video, which can be viewed below. Capacity is due out June 9th through Saddle Creek.Pre-order Capacity it here.

 

There is a darker darkness and a lighter light on this album. The songs search for a deeper level of self-acceptance, to embrace the world within and without. I think Masterpiece began that process, as a first reaction from inside the pain, and Capacity continues that examination with a wider perspective. Singer and Guitarist Adrianne Lenker explained about the new forthcoming album, Capacity.
