Whitney have announced a massive 2020 tour and given us two new releases to get us all excited. That mean’s today you have a doubling help of our Track of the Day as Whitney share ‘FTA’ and a special cover of ‘Far, Far Away’.
The band will also be appearing at your favourite festivals with a very special spot at London’s All Points East is the current pick of the bunch. The extensive touring is naturally in support of the band’s new record Forever Turned Around.
The duo has a very special knack and it is one that is heavily employed on these two releases. That knack is to make drifting and dreamy music, that would likely find a loving home in the Americana indie films which swamped the ’00s, somehow feel more tangible and more relevant than ever before.
‘FTA’ is a beautiful number compacted with golden hues and autumnal musings while the cover of Wilco’s ‘Far, far Away’ acts as another reminder that their sound is a singular being. There is, and always has been, something a little crisper and a little more authentic to Whitney’s sound.
The ‘FTA’ and ‘Far, Far Away’ is available to stream below and will also be available as a limited 7″ for the band’s hometown residency at Chicago’s Thalia Hall.
