White Lung Release New Song ‘If You’re Gone’

    White Lung have released a new single, ‘If You’re Gone’, taken from their upcoming album Premonition. Billed as the Vancouver band’s final LP, the record was announced in September with the tracks ‘Date Night’ and ‘Tomorrow’. Listen to ‘If You’re Gone’ below.

    “Suicide was in the zeitgeist in many ways when I wrote this song,” frontwoman Mish Barber-Way said of ‘If You’re Gone’ in a statement. “At the time, a few prominent public figures had killed themselves and they all had children. I was thinking about postpartum depression and how real it can hit. The song is about the emotions of children when their parent is now gone and how they deal with that loss. It also looks at the struggle parents face when life gets so bad one doesn’t see another way but to end it.”

    Premonition is set to land on December 2 via Domino.
