The Chicago band have also covered SWV’s ‘Rain’.
Whitney have also teamed up with Katie Crutchfield (of Waxahatchee) to cover 'Take Me Home, Country Roads', marking the pair's first new material since 2019's Forever Turned Around.
Guitarist Max Kakacek said of working with Waxahatchee;
"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.”
Whitney described both tracks as formative for their own musical journey.
"My relationship with SWV goes back to my UMO days, when I was 19 in the van and listening to ‘Right Here’,” drummer and vocalist Julien Ehrlich commented.
“I’ve been obsessed with them since I was a teenager. The song interpolates Jaco Pastorious’ ‘Portrait of Tracy’, which is one of my favorite basslines ever.”
Whitney are scheduled to perform a special livestream show on June 4, with proceeds going to the National Independent Venue Association.
