Listen Whitney share new tracks ‘FTA’ and ‘Far, Far Away’

Whitney share new tracks ‘FTA’ and ‘Far, Far Away’

The new song and Wilco cover are their first new releases since August’s sophomore album ‘Forever Turned Around’.

Following loads of summer festival slots and recently announcing that they’ll be joining Tame Impala for All Point’s East next year, Whitney have also shared two brand new tracks.

Releasing ‘FTA’ and b-side Wilco cover ‘Far, Far Away’, the two songs mark their first new material since the release of August’s ‘Forever Turned Around’ record.

Speaking to us back in August about the record, they said: “In Britain you’ve had Brexit and in America we’ve had Trump, and we wanted this album to speak to those anxieties and how disconnected some people feel from reality right now.

“If you pay close attention to the lyrics then this record might take you to a dark place, but that’s what we wanted. We couldn’t just make the same album again. We wanted to show people that when they are in that dark place, in a relationship or whatever, they’re not alone. This might not be the most immediately rewarding record, but it grows on you and as you go through some shit in your life, it will be there waiting for you at the end of the day.”
