Courtney Barnett shares new track 'How To Boil An Egg'
Australian singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett has shared new track, How To Boil An Egg.
A reworked version of one of her earliest musical efforts, the track carries Barnett’s celebrated style of twangy guitar, deadpan singing and quick-witted lyrics.
How To Boil An Egg is released as part of a collaboration between Barnett’s own Milk! Records and fellow Australian label Bedroom Suck. This is part of a wider project called 'The Split Singles' which sees independent Australian artists release unheard songs on limited edition 7 inch vinyl.
Barnett said of her new track: “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 doing some demos for my next album. In the 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 song-writing experiment that doesn’t really belong anywhere else.”
‘How To Boil An Egg’ is available now. Limited vinyl subscriptions to Milk! Records and Bedroom Suck’s ‘Split Singles Club’ are available online.
