Watch Big Thief Perform Stripped-Back Version of 'Paul'


Adrianna Lenker and Buck Meek of Brooklyn's indie-band Big Thief recently dropped by the Rolling Stone office to perform a stripped-down version of "Paul", from their 2016 debut Masterpiece. Even here, trimmed down to just a pair of vocals and a single guitar, "Paul" still delivers the same dreamy sentiment through delicate harmony and haunting vocals.

The track, released in early-2016, presents itself as a soft cry of hope. "The ghost of relationship future wrote that song," says Lenker, noting that "it's more of a song about a raging internal battle than it is a love song."
