Whyte Horses - Hard Times
The notoriously elusive Whyte Horses have announced details of their third studio album, appropriately for now entitled ‘Hard Times’ and set to be released on January 17th 2020 through burgeoning indie label CRC Records. Described by Whyte Horses’ creator and curator Dom Thomas as a “fantasy mixtape”, the project sees this shape-shifting musical dream-pop collective re-imagining songs from an eclectic mix of musical backgrounds. Exploring the work of others and re-imagining them for ‘Hard Times’ was a natural step for Whyte Horses given Dom’s background as a DJ, cratedigger, and founder of Manchester-based Finders Keepers – the respected underground vinyl reissue label - but it’s also led to the group’s most ambitious collaborative project to date. Bringing together covers as diverse as the Bee Gee’s ‘Mr. Natural’ to Nancy Sinatra’s ‘Bang Bang’, Whyte Horses have brought in an esteemed list of vocal collaborators including Badly Drawn Boy, La Roux, Gruff Rhys, Chrysta Bell and many more alongside John Grant on the title track.
