Said the Whale Share Secrets with New Single "Sweetheart"
The track marks the fifth single release from their forthcoming album 'Dandelion'
Published Sep 23, 2021Slow and steady wins the race for Said the Whale, as their new single "Sweetheart" joins the ranks of songs released from their upcoming album Dandelion.
As co-frontman and songwriter Ben Worcester noted in a statement, their new single examines what we share, and more importantly, what we don't share with the ones we love. "'Sweetheart' is an exploration of secrets," he said. "How (and why) we keep them, who we keep them from, and how they affect our relationships."
Worcester elaborated on the inspiration for "Sweetheart":
This song doesn't refer to a specific moment or circumstance in my life, but instead speaks to the idea in general — how revealing our innermost thoughts and fears can serve to weaken some bonds but other times can actually strengthen them — the beauty of sharing a secret with a lover, keeping something hidden from the world, a covenant of mutual trust.
The new release comes accompanied by a cinematic video, in keeping with the previously released singles from Dandelion. Their latest track is the fifth addition to their slow-build album release alongside "Show Me Everything," "99 to the Moon," "Everything She Touches Is Gold to Me" and "Honey Lungs." Watch the latest visual treat below.
The album will be released on October 22 by the Vancouver-based band's frontman, Tyler Bancroft, through his own label, Everything Forever.
Said the Whale are due to hit the road on a North American tour this November and they'll make plenty of stops in Canada along the way. Check the full schedule of events here.
