King Hannah Announce New Album ‘Big Swimmer’, Share New Single With Sharon Van Etten

    Liverpool duo King Hannah have announced the follow-up to their 2022 debut LP I’m Not Sorry, I Was Just Being Me. It’s called Big Swimmer, and it arrivees May 31 via City Slang. Produced by Ali Chant, the album features Sharon Van Etten on two songs, including the title track, which is out today. Check out a video for it below, and scroll down for Big Swimmer‘s cover art and tracklist, as well as the band’s upcoming tour dates.

    “I remember sitting at my desk and the song just came pouring out and the big swimmer metaphor instantly felt right; to never give up on whatever it is you’re swimming hard towards,” vocalist Hannah Merrick said in a statement. “But I like that it questions the listener too, that whenever you’re faced with something challenging, do you carry on swimming or do you jump out and grab our towel? There’s no right answer, but it feels empowering and necessary for the record.”
