Chicago-via-Portland indie duo Whitney have shared two new covers. The first is an appropriately wistful version of John Denver's country classic "Take Me Home, Country Roads" with Katie Crutchfield of Waxahatchee; the second is a hyper-mellow take on SWV's 1997 R&B hit "Rain." Listen to both below.

The covers are Whitney's first singles since their excellent second LP Forever Turned Around came out last summer. Read our feature on the band, published just before FTA's release, here.
