In an interview with Rolling Stone, Barnett calls the album her attempt
to find “some sort of joy and gratitude, out of some sort of pain and sadness.”
She wrote the bulk of the material at her friend’s apartment in Melbourne,
where she was crashing to self-quarantine upon returning from L.A. at the
start of the pandemic: “I ended up staying there for the whole year. It was this
amazing little flat, and it had these beautiful big windows and big light. I was
really lucky to get that place.”

Lead-single: RAE STREET
A vintage mid-tempo, moody – Barnett slacker – reflection.

COURTNEY BARNETT Shares Video Clip For Her New Track ‘EVERYBODY HERE HATES YOU’…

Clips that will impress your ears and your eyes

We, the fans (I’m still thrilled about seeing her eye-to-eye in a small Brussels club back in 2014 when she played for about 100 people – pics from that gig below), know for some time now that COURTNEY BARNETT is one of the coolest, most creative and most down
to earth singer/songwriters walking this planet. Following her 2018 album Tell Me How You Really Feel here’s new single EVERYBODY HERE HATES YOU. It’s vintage Barnett swagger, vintage Barnett melodiousness, vintage Barnett sadness. She said she wrote it while listening to a lot of Jeff Buckley. Listen/watch here…

COURTNEY BARNETT Is So Great When It Comes To ‘SMALL TALK’…

Brand new sonic impulses

4 October 2018

Last May COURTNEY BARNETT released her second, splendid longplayer Tell Me How You Really Feel. And today she revealed an unreleased song from those LP sessions. SMALL TALK is as good as anything that turned up on the album. It’s an entrancing
five-and-a-half-minute jam starting with Barnett having a casual conversation with an imaginary companion and ends with an utterly cool guitar/organ jam. She’s a great storyteller, a magnetic guitar player and she never wrote/writes a dull song. Enjoy here…
