Whitney have shared two new covers, including a duet with Waxahatchee on ‘Take Me Home, Country Roads’

Whitney have jumped back into frame, releasing two new covers - their first releases since 2019 album ‘Forever Turned Around’

With the idea of covers integral to the band in their early development, the Chicago duo have stepped back into that mindset, releasing versions of John Denver’s ‘Take Me Home, Country Roads’ and SWV’s ‘Rain’

On ‘Take Me Home, Country Roads’, Whitney team up with one Waxahatchee for a pretty special version if we do say so ourselves. As Max Kakacek notes: “We knew that Katie was destined to sing this with us. We both heard her live and she has this classic country vibe. Once we heard her voice on it, it was pretty much magical. Her contribution is perfect”.

Speaking about their version of ‘Rain’, drummer/singer extraordinaire Julien Ehrlich detailed: “My relationship with SWV goes back to my UMO days, when I was 19 in the van and listening to ‘Right Here’. I've been obsessed with them since I was a teenager. The song interpolates Jaco Pastorious' ‘Portrait of Tracy’, which is one of my favourite basslines ever”.

Whitney have also revealed that they’ll be playing a special livestream show on Thursday June 4th, with proceeds from that benefitting the National Independent Venue Association. More info on the organisation, and the show, can be found here
