Great Lake Swimmers Announce 'Swimming Away' EP Out April 8, 2016

Canadian indie darlings Great Lake Swimmers will release their new EP, Swimming Away, on April 8, 2016 via Nettwerk.  The four song digital EP includes two covers, a Tom Waits classic, “Innocent When You Dream” and the aching PJ Harvey song “The Desperate Kingdom Of Love.” It also features two new songs, the starkly beautiful “Condition White,” which was commissioned for the series Torn From The Pages and is based on the novel Sleep by Nino Ricci, and finally the hypnotic title track “Swimming Away,” which is an unreleased outtake from latest album A Forest Of Arms. " The title track premiered yesterday on The Bluegrass Situation.
