Whitney are sharing new single ‘For A While’, a fan favourite which was penned around their 2016 debut ‘Light Upon The Lake’ and became a staple in their early live sets. “The lyrics of ‘For A While’ were inspired by a time Max and I drove past a burning car on the side of the highway in Northern Illinois,” Julien Ehrlich explains. “From what we could see everyone made it out safely, but in that moment we were both struck by the ubiquity of anonymous tragedy. Over the course of writing ‘For A While’ that experience evolved into a feeling of gratitude and love for all the people who aren’t able to be with us today. We’ve been working on this song for a few years and a few different phases of our lives. It’s seen some people come and go. We love you all.” Whitney released their third album ‘SPARK’ last year. In our review of the album, we said, “‘Spark’ presents a jarring change: not one from that familiar warmth to icy cold, but only halfway, a sort of uncomfortable mild chill.” Revisit our full review here, and have a listen to ‘For A While’ below.
