Afghan Whigs Announce New Album, Share New Song “The Getaway”: Listen

Back in February, the Afghan Whigs returned with their first new song in five years, “I’ll Make You See God.” Turns out that was a preview of the first Afghan Whigs album since 2017’s beloved In Spades. It’s called How Do You Burn? and it’s out in September.

A lot of recurring Afghan Whigs friends were involved in the new album. Greg Dulli’s frequent collaborator Mark Lanegan sang on two tracks, and provided the name How Do You Burn? Susan Marshall, who sang on the Whigs album 1965guests on “Catch A Colt,” and Van Hunt (who’d previously toured with the Whigs and was on Do The Beast), appears on both “Jyja” and “Take Me There.” Marcy Mays, who sang on Gentlemen‘s “My Curse,” returns for “Domino And Jimmy” here.

Along with the announcement, the band have shared a new single called “The Getaway.” Check it out below.
