It’s been a year and three months – yes, seriously, that long – since Whitney released their debut album ‘Light Upon The Lake’. Where does the time go, eh?
Since releasing the LP, the band have toured relentlessly and popped up at festivals all over the place. Now, they’ve announced plans to release an album of demo versions. ‘Light Upon The Lake: Demo Recordings’ will be out on 10th November via Secretly Canadian.
To coincide with the announcement, the band have shared a previously unreleased song, ‘You and Me’. It was born from some of the earliest sessions that led up to ‘Light Upon The Lake’ in 2014 and 2015, and captures the vintage, lilting yet uplifting sound that Whitney perfected on their debut album with just some slightly rougher, lo-fi edges.
Listen to ‘You and Me’ and see the tracklisting for ‘Light Upon The Lake: Demo Recordings’ below.

They’ll be joined by Glass Animals, Caribou, Whitney and more.
Highlights also include girl in red, CHAI and Mac DeMarco.
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.
