Listen to Courtney Barnett cover Leonard Cohen as part of MTV Unplugged live album


Courtney Barnett has released her MTV Australia Unplugged Live in Melbourne album which has been made available to stream online.

Set to be made for physical release in February next year, was filmed in October as part of an intimate performance in Barnett’s hometown of Melbourne, Australia.

“I love playing to Melbourne crowds… I wanted to have a mixture of old songs, new songs and covers, and tracks that we don’t perform all the time — it’s been interesting to see the songs through a different filter,” Barnett said in a statement. “And it brings out this other emotional side to the music and the lyrics.”

Playing alongside her usual band members, Barnett also introduced some guest collaborators and produced a unique cover of Leonard Cohen song ‘So Long, Marianne’.

See some footage, the tracklist and the album, below.
