Jen Cloher is an indie-folk/rock singer/songwriter from Melbourne. She has released three albums and a couple of EPs and singles, She has been dating indie darling/rising superstar Courtney Barnett for several years, and they’ve collaborated on each other’s records before. On August 11th, she’ll release her fourth album “Jen Cloher on Milk Records which is the label that Cloher and Barnett run together.

The song is about “the sacrifices and difficulties of maintaining a long-distance relationship with a high-profile partner”. They live together, but Barnett spent a long time touring with her brilliant debut “Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit”, so I guess they’ve spent a lot of time apart from each other.

First single from Jen Cloher’s self-titled album (2017) released through Milk! Records.

Second single from Jen Cloher’s self-titled album out August 2017. The album was recorded in a one-room studio in a rural Australian town, then mixed in Jeff Tweedy’s studio in Chicago. Barnett contributed guitar and vocals to the entire album. Their friend Kurt Vile also played guitar on one track, and Andrew “Bones” Sloane (bass) is a full-time member of the band. Both are also frequent collaborators with Barnett.
