    Chicago indie outfit Whitney have announced their next album, Forever Turned Around, with the new single, “Giving Up.”

    The golden, idyllic sounds of “Giving Up” belie the dispirited lyrics delivered by Julien Ehrlich, his vocal melodies reminiscent of the golden ’70s era of soft pop. “Tears are falling one by one, I can feel you giving up,” the drummer/vocalist sings. “I’ve been hangin’ on because you’re the only one I love, even when you’re giving up.”

    “Giving Up” opens Forever Turned Around, which follows Whitney’s 2016 debut, Light Upon the Lake. The new album is due out August 30 via Secretly Canadian. Listen to the song here:
