Whitney have shared "Kansas," a live favorite that anyone who saw the band on tour in the last year will recognize from their shows. The track is Whitney's first release since last year's SPARK but dates back to sessions for their 2019 album Forever Turned Around.
"Kansas" taps into Whitney's loose and wistful vibe, with Julien Ehrlich singing, "You know Iʼm just another daydreamer, Hanging from a moment. Darling Iʼve been floating in a river, Wishing I could slow it," over delicately picked guitars.
In a statement released alongside the new recording, Whitney elaborated on the lifespan of "the song. “We started ʻKansasʼ back in 2017 at the beginning of the Forever Turned Around writing sessions. The initial idea saw a couple different mutations but eventually we fully rewrote it into the title track for LP2. At some point during tour rehearsals in 2022 we decided to put the original unfinished ʻKansasʼ in the set to see how people would respond and it quickly became a centerpiece. So in March of this year we finished writing and recording ʻKansasʼ as it was originally imagined and weʼre thrilled to finally release it.”
