Courtney Barnett Teases New Music

Australian singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett has teased new music in a video posted on Twitter.

This new material would be Barnett’s first new music as a solo artist since her critically acclaimed 2015 breakthrough album, Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit. Late last year, Barnett released a collaboration LP with Philadelphia singer-songwriter Kurt Vile called Lotta Sea Lice, which was also well-received among fans and critics, and was listed at #5 on Paste’s list of the 50 best albums of 2017.

The new video posted to Barnett’s Twitter today features her playing various new songs on the drums, acoustic guitar, piano and electric guitar, and the video ends with the words, “Tell Me How You Really Feel.”

In November, Barnett told Zane Lowe on Beats 1, “I’m trying to come up with a title for my new album … It’s all one-sentence thoughts, you know trying to come up with something clever.” When Lowe asked her if she had finished the album, Barnett replied, “It’s well, I mean, maybe I gave too much away but it’s getting close.”
