Big Thief are releasing a new album, Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe in You, on February 11 via 4AD. Now they have shared another song from it, “Simulation Swarm.” “Simulation Swarm” has been a live favorite, but a studio version has never been released before. Listen below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

When the album was announced Big Thief shared the song “Time Escaping,” which was one of our Songs of the Week. Then in December they shared two more songs from it: “No Reason” and “Spud Infinity.”

Other previously shared tracks from the album include “Change” (one of our Songs of the Week), “Certainty,” “Little Things” (also one of our Songs of Week), and “Sparrow.”

Their last studio album, Two Hands, came out in 2019 via 4AD.
