    Back in March, Whitney digitally released a 12-inch single featuring two cover songs. One side featured a version of Dolly Parton’s “Gonna Hurry (As Slow As I Can)”, the other saw the Cosigned indie rockers’ take on Dutch synth-pop duo Lion’s 1975 song “You’ve Got a Woman”. They’ve now shared the video for the latter track, which you can watch above.

    The clip follows one man trapped on the trickier side of an affair. He sits at a bar watching his lover play pool with her significant other, all the while dreaming of long drives and motel rendezvous. When he finally gets her away for some time alone, however, the inevitable confrontation looms in his rearview mirror.

    The Peter Simonite and Nick Simonite-directed video comes as Whitney have once again expanded their already extensive world tour. The newly added dates are scattered throughout the summer, including stops at Newport Folk Festival, Milwaukee’s Summerfest, and the BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival. Whitney will have physical copies of the covers 12-inch available at their shows ahead of its official June 2nd release via Secretly Canadian. Find their complete itinerary below.
