Last week, Australian singer, songwriter, guitarist and favorite rockers Courtney Barnett released “How To Boil An Egg,” a newly recorded song she recorded for Milk! Records’ Split Singles Club. About the song, Barnett says:

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.
