Shot in the scorching heat of the Southern American summer in conjunction with Apple Music, Barnett and her band (Bones Sloane, Katie Harkin and Dave Mudie) played through the entirety of their acclaimed album Tell Me How You Really Feel in Atlanta’s Piedmont Park. Each song on the album gets the full cinematic treatment directed by rising US film-maker Claire-Marie Vogel (Julia Holter, Mutemath, Metallica, Margaret Glaspy) and mixed by Cal Barter. This is the first time these videos have been made available for wide-spread viewing.
Barnett and her band will begin their Australian tour next week before heading over to New Zealand for two shows at Powerstation in Auckland and one night at The Opera House in Wellington. The band recently completed multiple tours of the USA and Europe which included sold-out shows in iconic venues like Brooklyn’s Prospect Park and London’s Roundhouse, as well as career-defining sets at London’s All Points East Festival (with Nick Cave, St. Vincent and Patti Smith), Chicago’s Pitchfork Festival and Newport Folk Festival.
Earlier this week, she also shared a live version of album favourite Charity and a cover of Elyse Weinberg’s Houses. Recorded during a Spotify Singles Session in NYC in May, the two tracks find Courtney in brilliant form; razor sharp and rocking out on the live studio recording of Charity, and poignant and sublime on Houses.
The session is available to stream in full on Spotify here, but the tracks will also be available as a gorgeous red vinyl 7” single via Milk! Records here. As usual, it is another stunning addition to what is already becoming a canonical body of work for Courtney Barnett.
Barnett’s hotly anticipated new album Tell Me How You Really Feel has lived up to impossibly high expectations, debuting at #10 on the New Zealand Charts, #2 on the Australian Charts, hitting the UK’s Official Charts Top 10, topping multiple US charts and drawing an endless stream of superlatives from critics around the world.
