Almost a year on from releasing their gorgeous debut album ‘Light Upon The Lake’, Whitney have announced details of a new 12”.
The new release is set to come out in June via Secretly Canadian, and features two covers. The band have taken on versions of ‘You’ve Got A Woman’ by Lion, and Dolly Parton track ‘Gonna Hurry (As Slow As I Can).
Talking of the former track in a press release, drummer Julian Ehrlich says: ”As soon as I heard it, I wished I’d written the vocal melody; it’s so catchy and powerful.
“It’s quite evil-sounding for us. It was fun to mess around with something darker and throw strings in.”
The band have also announced a handful of UK dates in June, playing Manchester and Brighton shows in addition to a date at Field Day.
Listen to the two new tracks and view the UK dates below.
03 London, Field Day
04 Manchester, Ritz
27 Brighton, Concorde 2

Returning with new LP ‘Forever Turned Around’, we find the duo in a more reflective, melancholy state of mind - but still finding beauty in what might seem bleak.
We’re not asking Whitney to soundtrack a raging rebellion, we just want them to make us feel things.
Whitney, Boy Azooga and Let’s Eat Grandma also impress.
