Finally some more music from one of our most beloved artists; Courtney Barnett. The aussie singer has released her new track ‘How To Boil An Egg’ as part of the Milk! Records Split Singles Club release. The label she founded with Jen Cloher is offering the track on 7” by subscribing to the singles club.
Barnett said of the release “I used to perform this song at all the open-mics when I was 21. It never got recorded, so for personal-posterity I updated it and made this version recently when I was bunkered up in the bush doin some demos for my next album.
“In tradition of the Milk! Records compilation releases, like ‘Pickles From the Jar’ or ‘Three Packs A Day’, I wanted to include a song of mine for Split Singles Club that was a tad left of album-centre. It’s a songwriting experiment that doesn’t really belong anywhere else.”
With the follow up to her widely-acclaimed 2015 album Sometime I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit on the way it’s great to hear some classic Courtney on this single.
