- Courtney Barnett Premieres New Song “How to Boil an Egg”
- Australian singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett has delivered a new song "How to Boil an Egg". The song is part of the Split Singles Club series, a collaboration between Barnett’s own Milk! Records and fellow Australian indie Bedroom Suck.
The song is her old song, which was written by herself at age 21, she reworked and recorded for the Split Singles Club.
She revealed that she has been working on her sophomore album with American singer-songwriter Kurt Vile. Her debut album "Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit" was released in 2015.
Courtney Barnett explained about the song;
"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."
