Courtney Barnett has revealed the music video for “Sunday Roast,” taken from her forthcoming album Tell Me How You Really Feel, due out on May 18th via Mom+Pop / Marathon Artists / Milk! Records.

Tell Me How You Really Feel is Barnett’s second solo album, which follows her smash-hit debut full-length Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit. Barnett unveiled three other cuts from her new album earlier this year: City Looks Pretty, Nameless Faceless and Need a Little Time.

In her video for “Sunday Roast,” Barnett takes the reins as guitar teacher as various close-up shots of Barnett’s guitar playing move across the screen. She plays while sitting in front of a purple backdrop casually held up by two of her bandmates, who, at various points, sing along, accidentally drop the backdrop and check their cell phones.

Rolling Stone magazine praised Courtney Barnett as “one of the sharpest, most original songwriters around — at any level, in any genre.” At festivals like SXSW, Bonnaroo, and Lollapalooza, the Australian indie rocker has garnered fans worldwide since her 2012 debut EP. In 2016, she took Songwriter of the Year honors at the APRA (Australasian Performing Right Association) Music Awards and was nominated for a Best New Artist Grammy. Her new album is Tell Me How You Really Feel.  features Katie Harkin (keyboards), Andrew Sloane (bass), David Mudie (drums).

Courtney Barnett will release her highly anticipated new album Tell Me How You Really Feel.  To date she has released three singles from the record.

She performed all four of these songs in a taped show for NPR’s Chris-Thile-hosted Live From Here, formerly known as Prarie Home Companion .

Tell Me How You Really Feel, the second proper album from Courtney Barnett, the great Australian songwriter and guitar-monster. Tell Me How You Really Feel is very much a rock album, but it’s more chilled-out and reflective than her previous album. Host Chris Thile introduced Barnett with a joke about Barnett driving up the show’s electricity bill, but it wasn’t like she was playing on gigantic ceiling-high Bill & Ted style amps. For Barnett, this came off as a pretty laid-back set, one where she played four songs from the new album, including one we haven’t heard yet.

She played all three of the song released so far, and all three sounded great. She also played “Sunday Roast,” the album’s meditative closer, a song that most of the world hasn’t heard yet. (If you managed to get your hands on the “City Looks Pretty” Record Store Day single, “Sunday Roast” was the B-side.

Barnett is currently embarking on a short string of U.S. warm-up shows, which wrap up in Chicago on May 21st, but she will also play more tour dates across North America, the U.K. and Europe, with an impressive lineup of special guests. Support will come from the likes of Jay Som, Julien Baker, Big Thief, Molly Burch, Vagabon, LALA LALA, Loose Tooth and Palehound.
