Big Thief’s Buck Meek Announces New Album Haunted Mountain, Shares Video for New Song: Watch

Buck Meek: Haunted Mountain

Buck Meek, the singer-songwriter who plays guitar in Big Thief, has announced his new album. The follow-up to 2021’s Two Saviors is called Haunted Mountain, and it’s out August 25 via his new label home, 4AD. The title track was co-written with Jolie Holland, who co-wrote five of the album’s 11 songs. Watch its new Riley Engemoen–directed video below.

Meek is joined on the album by guitarist Adam Brisbin, drummer Austin Vaughn, pedal steel player Mat Davidson, bassist Ken Woodward, and Meek’s brother, Dylan Meek, who plays piano and synthesizers. The album was produced by Davidson and recorded and mixed by Adrian Olsen. “The music here is an expression of a group,” Davidson said in a statement. “I asked for the job because I felt strongly that we shouldn’t bring in someone from outside the band. Otherwise, the only personal desire I had was that we be able to explore space, that we let the music open up and slow down in contrast to previous records—not in terms of tempo but rather overall movement, information between the beats.”
