Today Big Thief announce Capacity, their highly anticipated second album, will be drop June 9 on Saddle Creek. The band also just shared the video for the first single, “Mythological Beauty.”

“There is a darker darkness and a lighter light on this album,” reveals singer and guitarist Adrianne Lenker. “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.”
