Liverpool duo King Hannah (Hannah Merrick and Craig Whittle) have today announced Big Swimmer, the pair's new album, due for release on 31st May via City Slang. Coinciding with the announcement they have unveiled its title track featuring special guest vocals from Sharon Van Etten, who the band connected with when Van Etten posted about their debut single ‘Crème Brûlée’. Vocalist Hannah Merrick has to say on the song – “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. 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.” The band have also announced a run of UK and EU shows for September 2024. Tickets will be available here and go on sale Friday 8th March at 10am local time. Take a listen to Big Swimmer below!
