Adrianne Lenker Shares Heartbreaking New Track “Ruined”

Adrianne Lenker (Big Thief) presents a new single and video, “Ruined”. The track is a heart-breaking, remarkable intro to Lenker’s highly anticipated new solo album, which she has announced will be coming in 2024. A generational songwriter, Lenker is performing at an unprecedented scale and continuing to surprise listeners. On “Ruined”, she moves to the piano for the first time, lamenting, “Can’t get enough of you // You come around I’m ruined.” A powerful torch song that demands attention, “Ruined” is destined to stay with you after its final notes fade.

The accompanying “Ruined” video was directed by Adrianne’s brother Noah Lenker, and collages gorgeous footage of Lenker in autumnal foliage. It’s a breath-taking mosaic of Lenker soaking in riverbeds, basking in the afternoon sun, and dancing along tree-lined paths.
