Courtney Barnett has reunited with longtime collaborator Danny Cohen on the video for new single Everybody Here Hates You which she shares today. The award-winning director ingeniously takes us inside Barnett’s brain as it slowly implodes, to dizzying, brilliant effect.
Recorded late in 2018 during a rare break at the height of her Tell Me How You Really Feel world tour, Everybody Here Hates You is the closest Barnett has ever come to capturing the extraordinary weight and swagger of her live performance on a recording. This is unadulterated rock and roll; a rollicking paean to depression and self-belief; a blues tinged behemoth with squalling guitars, organs and tambourines. Everybody Here Hates You is available worldwide through Milk! Records/Marathon Artists/Mom+Pop.
Everybody Here Hates You features one of the most anthemic sing-along choruses Barnett has ever conjured, with a lead vocal that brings new strength and range to her unmistakable voice. The single is also the superb final instalment from the creative period of Barnett’s life which gave birth to her acclaimed and adored sophomore album ’Tell Me How You Really Feel’.
Barnett’s new single comes as she gears up for a huge run of shows across North America and Europe. Starting this May she’ll play her first ever shows in Greece, Turkey, Croatia and Hungary before playing a string of high-profile festival slots throughout Europe. She’ll play with US-based rock royalty The National throughout their extensive North American tour as well as gracing stages at Tennessee’s Bonnaroo Festival and the 50th Anniversary of the legendary Woodstock Festival.
