Everyone’s favorite Australian guitar-wielding queen of dry wit, Courtney Barnett, has announced her forthcoming third album Things Take Time, Take Time, out Nov. 12 via Mom + Pop Music / Marathon Artists. The album arrives three years after Tell Me How You Really Feel, and was produced by producer and drummer Stella Mozgawa (Warpaint, Cate le Bon, Kurt Vile).
Alongside the announcement comes the album’s first single “Rae Street.” Barnett’s warm guitar envelopes her narrative of a cozy, tight-knit community that she observes alongside the fast-paced world of money, greed and selfishness. The song’s visual features several Barnetts filling in every role in the titular street, playing mother, delivery person and sidewalk paver. It’s a fun look inside Barnett’s quirky little world that captures the mundane, yet precious moments of daily life.
In addition to the album, Barnett is scheduled to embark on a massive North American tour which kicks off Nov. 29 in Las Vegas, with support from Bedouine, Bartees Strange, Julia Jacklin, Shamir and a one-off date with Warpaint.
