Adrianne Lenker Shares Palestine Benefit EP of Demos

Prolific songwriter and Big Thief vocalist Adrianne Lenker has shared i won’t let go of your hand, a six-song collection of demos. Available via Bandcamp, 100% of the proceeds from the release will go toward the Palestinian Children’s Relief Fund.

Along with the collection of demos, Lenker released a statement urging for a permanent and immediate ceasefire in the war between Israel and Hamas.

“Everything I think to say feels like it is less than a micro-fraction of the power that is needed to convey the message,” she wrote via Instagram. “I can’t express how sad and angry I am about this ongoing violence towards Palestinians. The killing must stop. The need for a ceasefire is beyond urgent. Permanent Ceasefire Now!”

i won’t let go of your hand isn’t the first time Lenker has intersected with the Israeli–Palestinian conflict. Big Thief played Tel Aviv, Israel, in 2017, and planned to return in 2020 before canceling due to the pandemic. In 2022, they announced two more dates in Tel Aviv, noting that band member Max Oleartchik is from Israel in an accompanying statement.

After initially defending their decision, the band eventually canceled the pair of 2022 dates, clarifying in a statement, “To be clear, we oppose the illegal occupation and the systematic oppression of the Palestinian people. We believe in total freedom and self-determination for all Palestinians.”

Lenker will release her new solo album, Bright Future, on March 22nd, which she’ll be supporting with a North American tour. Get tickets here.
