    In the midst of touring and celebrating the success of their 2016 debut, Light Upon the Lake, Cosigned indie rockers Whitney have announced a new 12-inch single. The digital release boasts a pair of covers, with the A-side featuring an obscure psychedelic track called “You’ve Got A Woman” originally recorded by Dutch synth-pop duo Lion in 1975. The B-side pays homage to Dolly Parton with one of her earlier reflections on heartbreak, a demo called “Gonna Hurry (As Slow As I Can)”.

    The physical 12-inch will be available on June 2nd via Secretly Canadian. Listen to both new tracks below.

    It’s not the first time Whitney have honored some of their iconic predecessors: They are known to incorporate covers into their live shows, and just last month, they released a cover of Bob Dylan’s 1969 song “Tonight I’ll Be Staying Here With You” via a Spotify Singles session.
