Courtney Barnett is in the final throes of a North American tour in support of her latest LP, Tell Me How You Really Feel, with a European leg set to kick off next month. The Aussie songwriter remains prolific, however, having just released a brand new song called “Small Talk”.
An unreleased track from the sessions for her latest album, “Small Talk” is included on Mom+Pop Music’s 10th anniversary compilation, which will enjoy a release party featuring Barnett in Brooklyn on October 22nd. The song represents everything we’ve come to love about Barnett, from her patient, springy jams to her clever, nostalgic lyrics, which here evoke the forced pleasantries of the song’s namesake. Hear it below.
Recently, Barnett released a music video for “Charity”, and offered up a live rendition to Spotify alongside a cover of Elyse Weinberg and Neil Young’s “Houses”. See her remaining tour dates below, and grab tickets here.
