We’re not exactly sure where Melbourne rock and roll sensation Courtney Barnett is at with her followup to 2015’s outstanding Sometimes I Sit And Think and Sometimes I Just Sit, but tonight we are positively pumped to bring you “How To Boil An Egg,” a newly recorded track she recorded for Milk! Records’ Split Singles Club. Though it’s hasn’t before been heard by our ears, this song actually goes back a ways for Barnett:
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 doin some demos for my next album. In 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 songwriting experiment that doesn’t really belong anywhere else.
Listen to the rollicking rocker below. Hopefully we’ll get to hear the fruit of that Kurt-and-Courtney collab sooner rather than later as well.
