King Hannah has announced their new album, Big Swimmer, will drop on May 31st on City Slang Records. The LP, produced by Ali Chant (Aldous Harding, PJ Harvey, Perfume Genius). Their first album since 2022’s I’m Not Sorry, I Was Just Being Me. Ahead of the album’s arrival, King Hannah has shared the title track featuring Sharon Van Etten. “I think Sharon just remembers what it’s like to be a new artist,” Whittle remarks on Van Etten lending her talents to the young band. “She’s made us think about how we move through the world, how we treat people.”

Big Swimmer, reflects on stories from their travels away from home, as the duo has played shows with Kurt Vile, Kevin Morby, Thurston Moore, and festivals throughout Europe and North America. Particularly in America, Merrick and Whittle found themselves looking through their tour van window as a sort of screen, allowing for inspiration for their storytelling to come pouring in. “Because if you’re visiting a different country, it’s more like you’re witnessing someone’s life,” Merrick comments on the band’s experiences on the road in the States.
