COURTNEY BARNETT shares ‘Sunday Roast’ - Watch Video

Today Courtney Barnett shares ‘Sunday Roast’, the fourth single from her highly anticipated album “Tell Me How You Really Feel” which is released next Friday.

‘Sunday Roast’ (which was given a very special limited release on 12” alongside City Looks Pretty to celebrate Record Store Day last month) follows on from the focused fury of Nameless, Faceless, the gorgeously contemplative Need a Little Time, and most recently the lilting warmth of the aforementioned City Looks Pretty, which saw Barnett experimenting with new song structures while delivering one of her most exhilarating guitar performances to date. ‘Sunday Roast’ is the beautiful album closer, an ode to friendship and the simple pleasures of sharing a dinner with loved ones, the perfect end point to such a rich and complex record.

Her debut album, Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit saw her top year-end lists and sell out shows to adoring audiences on five continents. She played the most iconic and revered festival stages, nominated for Best New Artist at the Grammy Awards in 2016 and also International Female Solo Artist at the Brits, not to mention scooping the top prizes in her homeland, including the Australian Music Prize, APRA’s Songwriter Of the Year and four ARIAs. “Lotta Sea Lice”, her collaborative album with kindred spirit Kurt Vile that came out last year was similarly lauded, ending up at number 11 in the album charts on release and garnering an NME Awards nomination for Best Collaboration.

Barnett is currently in the middle of a series of sold out USA album launch shows before heading to Europe later this month, with dates including Belfast’s BBC Biggest Weekend, the inaugural All Points East festival and London’s iconic Roundhouse.

Tell Me How You Really Feel will be released on May 18th through Marathon Artists and Barnett’s own label Milk! Records.
