on February 22, 2017, 1:05pm

Chicago’s Whitney had a wild 2016, what with the release of their widely acclaimed debut album, Light Upon the Lake, and a relentless tour schedule. They don’t seem to be slowing down, either. The indie-folk wunderkinds kicked off the year with a scorching performance on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and now they’ve just announced a massive spring and summer tour to follow their current dates supporting The Head and the Heart.

The tour includes dates alongside Natalie Prass as well as festival appearances at CoachellaBoston Calling, Shaky Knees Festival, Primavera Sound, Forecastle Festival, and more. Festival rookies no more.

Whitney’s also dropped a new Spotify Singles session, which includes an amiable cover of Bob Dylan’s 1969 song “Tonight I’ll Be Staying Here With You,” a staple of their recent live shows. Accompanying it is a live rendition of Light Upon the Lake standout “The Falls”. Stream it below.
