NEW ALBUM: COURTNEY BARNETT | THINGS TAKE TIME, TAKE TIME
Singer-songwriter Courtney Barett has unleashed her new album "Things Take Time, Take Time," which was written over two years and recorded in the direction of the tip of 2020 and early 2021 The album is Barnett at “her most artistic and adventurous,” the press launch continues. “It’s beautiful to take a look at Courtney’s non-public world, and consequently her most lovely and intimate report to this point, with songs dealing unabashedly with love, renewal, therapeutic and self-discovery.” The first single, "Rae Street," was released on 7 July 2021; the music video follows the residents of a suburban street, all of whom are played by Barnett. Barnett also released the 13-second non-album song "All Eyes on the Pavement" under the pseudonym Oliver Paul, the name of the protagonist of her 2015 song "Elevator Operator." The song was also released through a record label called A Crabby Mettle Neutron, an anagram of Barnett's full name. Barnett will launch her new album with a sprawling North American tour starting at the end of this month and running until mid-February. She announced that a string of dates in Australia would follow her US-run, and come March; she’ll hit stages in Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney. Earlier this year, Barnett teamed up with Vagabon to cover Tim Hardin’s "Reason To Believe" and Sharon Van Etten’s "Don’t Do It." and last month, released ‘Smile Real Nice,’ an original theme song for a new animated adaptation of "Harriet The Spy."
