Well this is a lovely Tuesday morning! Courtney Barnett is back with a new single!
The amazingly titled ’How To Boil An Egg’ has been released as part of the Milk! Records Split Singles Club, the label Barnett co-founded with Jen Cloher, and can be purchased on 7” by subscribing to the singles club.
Talking about the song, the singer says: “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.”
Courtney Barnett is currently working on the follow-up to her 2015 debut ‘Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit’.
