Courtney Barnett has had a pretty measured, yet successful, and constantly engaging career since her EP debut in 2012. That one was eventually bundled together with her 2013 EP to create The Double EP: A Sea Of Split Peas just one year later. Naturally, a year after that we got her excellent debut full length Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit. But beyond that point, no new solo material from the Aussie singer-songwriter has really surfaced.
Of course, Barnett did team up with fellow mellow rocker Kurt Vile to release Lotta Sea Lice just last year. It was a great little album, but still we were left to ponder when the next full length from just Barnett would arrive. Well now it looks like the announcement is imminent.
Yesterday Barnett shared a two and a half minute video that seems to be hinting at a new album. In the video, Barnett picks up a handful of instruments and plays a few snippets of new songs. The video ends with the title card: Tell Me How You Really Feel. No other info is given at the time of this writing, but if you head to her website (here) the date of February 15 is posted on top. There’s also a text box to submit “how you really feel.”
Check out the teaser video right down below. And we’re willing to bet now that comes February 15, we’ll be hearing more from Ms. Barnett.
