Holy smokes, it’s a new Courtney Barnett song! Listen to “How To Boil an Egg”
We’re not exactly sure where Melbourne rock and roll sensation Courtney Barnett is at with her followup to 2015’s outstanding Sometimes I Sit And Think and Sometimes I Just Sit, but tonight we are positively pumped to bring you “How To Boil An Egg,” a newly recorded track she recorded for Milk! Records’ Split Singles Club. Though it’s hasn’t before been heard by our ears, this song actually goes back a ways for Barnett:
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.
Listen to the rollicking rocker below. Hopefully we’ll get to hear the fruit of that Kurt-and-Courtney collab sooner rather than later as well.
