Adrianne Lenker’s ‘Bright Future’

Today, Jan 17th, Adrianne Lenker announces her new solo album, Bright Future, out on 22 March on 4AD, shares the new single “Sadness As A Gift”, and announces 2024 North American tour dates. Bright Future marks Lenker’s first album since 2020’s songs & instrumentals, and features co-production from Philip Weinrobe, alongside contributions from Nick Hakim, Mat Davidson, and Josefin Runsteen.

Following the previously released single “Ruined”, “Sadness As A Gift” sees Lenker at her most familiar and warm, a track that is both utterly timeless, yet sounding new and surprising on every listen. The aliveness of Adrianne’s voice keeps her poetry aloft. She sings in a circle completed by guitar, piano, violin, and all voices. “The seasons go so fast // Thinking that this one was going to last // Maybe the question was too much to ask.”

Adrianne’s North American tour, announced today, will go on sale this Friday at 3pm BST. The tour includes stops in Montreal, November 15th at L’Olympia, and Toronto, November 16th at Queen Elizabeth theatre.
