Whitney have shared two new covers. Enlisting the help of Waxahatchee, they released their own indie-folk inflected version of the John Denver staple “Take Me Home, Country Roads.” The band also covered a ’90s hit: R&B trio SWV’s “Rain.”
These aren’t the first covers to come out of the Chicago outfit. They shared a version of Wilco’s “Far, Far, Away” in late 2019 and a split single featuring covers of Lion’s “You’ve got a Woman,” alongside Dolly Parton’s “Gonna Hurry (As Slow as I Can)” in 2017. Whitney released their latest album, Forever Turned Around, in 2019.
