Adrianne Lenker

Big Thief‘s Adrianne Lenker has debuted a new single ‘Ruined’ and announced a 2024 UK and Europe tour.

The track is set to become the lead single from Lenker’s forthcoming sixth solo album, which will land next year. No further details about the album have been revealed as of yet.

‘Ruined’ sees Lenker move to the piano for the first time as she laments a conflicting romantic situation – “Can’t get enough of you/ You come around I’m ruined,” she sings.

“This song has been a quiet beacon for me. It may contain the essence of the gift of romantic love but it’s mostly about something much bigger,” Lenker added in a press release.

The music video was directed by Lenker’s brother Noah and shows her in a variety of autumnal landscapes, basking in the sun, dancing along paths and soaking in riverbeds.

Lenker has also announced a run of shows across the UK and Europe for next year, beginning in Galway, Ireland on April 19.

Following shows in Kilkenny and Dublin, Lenker will then move on for a string of gigs in the UK, including at London’s Barbican on April 27. The dates in the rest of the Europe will commence on May 2 in Paris and includes stops in Brussels, Amsterdam, Paris, Berlin and more before the tour wraps up on May 12 in Oslo.
