On their anticipated sophomore record, Forever Turned Around, beloved Chicago duo Whitney continue their distinct interpretation of ‘70s AM soft rock that made them a hit on the festival circuit after their 2016 debut Light Upon the Lake. Focusing on themes of relationships, loneliness, and the beauty of friendship, the record is a nostalgic slow-burner that basks in the warm glow of a summer evening.

Joined by five other musicians for their in-studio, Max Kakacek and Julien Ehrlich tell Cheryl Waters about the experience of making the new record and how their bond has led to a natural fusing of brains.

Recorded 10/25/19

  1. Friend of Mine
  2. Giving Up
