Said The Whale embrace growth on seventh studio album ‘Dandelion’

Vancouver’s Said The Whale are back with their seventh album, Dandelion.

Said The Whale recorded Dandelion over the pandemic lockdowns in 2020 and 2021. The band took part in a slew of short sessions with producer Steve Bays, where they created the record. Said The Whale truly let their creativity run free on this album, with lush instrumentals and spontaneous experiments.

“Dandelions are everywhere,” Said The Whale’s Ben Worcester explains. “Some people see them as nothing but a garden weed, but to many others they are a beautiful flower whose bloom marks the first sign of spring. Not to mention they are edible from root to flower, and have many medicinal properties. They grow whether or not you want them to, so why not focus on the positives?”

Stream Dandelion below.

Dandelion features previously released singles “Sweetheart,” “Show Me Everything,” “Everything She Touches is Gold to Me,” “Honey Lungs,” and “99 To The Moon.”

The band are set to celebrate the release with an All Day Pop-Up Shop + Silent Listening Party in Vancouver. It opens at 12:00 PT (3:00 EST), and fans can pre-book a tickets and a pair of headphones to listen to the album. Playback begins at 8:00 pm, and a Q&A with Said The Whale will take place afterwards.
