Adrianne Lenker

The Black Box

This show is now over. Please see our full listing for other shows you might enjoy.

Today, Adrianne Lenker (Big Thief) presents her new single and video, ‘Ruined’, and announces 2024 tour dates. ‘Ruined’ is a heart-breaking, remarkable intro to Lenker’s highly anticipated new solo album, which she has announced will be coming in 2024. Lenker is a generational songwriter, performing at an unprecedented scale and continuing to surprise listeners. On ‘Ruined’, Lenker 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.

Of ‘Ruined,’ Lenker says: “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.”
