London-based trio Dream Wife have released their new single Temporary.

It’s the latest track taken from Rakel Mjöll, Bella Podpadec and Alice Go’s upcoming studio album So When You Gonna…, which will launch on July 3 through Lucky Number.

Dream Wife previously shared the tracks Sports!, So When You Gonna… and Hasta La Vista from the follow-up to their self-titled 2018 debut album.

Speaking about Temporary, Dream Wife explain: “Temporary is a song about having hope through waves of difficulties and was written for a friend who went through multiple miscarriages and is now pregnant again.

“It’s about the heartbreak of repeatedly putting your body through the transformation and danger of pregnancy, and it's about holding space for dreams of creating new life and trying again.

“Miscarriages are not often in the media but as it is experienced by so many, it is important to speak.” 

Dream Wife have also announced that all proceeds from digital Bandcamp pre-orders of So When You Gonna… will be donated to Black Minds Matter and Gendered Intelligence

Dream Wife also have a podcast series, with each episode encouraging people to take up a new creative outlet such as songwriting, photography, playing guitar and music production.

The trio will tour across the UK and Europe in 2021. Find further details below.
