On October 22nd 2019 Courtney Barnett performed a unique and special show at the invitation of MTV in her hometown of Melbourne. The “Unplugged” performance features Barnett as you’ve never heard her before, warm, vulnerable and emotional, performing a stirring set of eight songs to an intimate audience including “Depreston”, “Avant Gardner” and “Sunday Roast”.

Joined by her usual band Dave Mudie and Bones Sloane, she also enlisted cellist Lucy Waldron. Barnett made the night even more iconic by inviting some of her favourite musicians to collaborate including legendary songwriter Paul Kelly, angelically-voiced New Zealander Marlon Williams and Milk! Records label-mate Evelyn Ida Morris.

hey how are you? Courtney Barnett here, i have a new song out today called ‘Everybody Here Hates You’. I started writing it in May 2017 at my freezing cold warehouse on an out-of-tune and unplugged Fender Stratocaster with rusty strings. It was from the paranoid pile of Tell Me How You Really Feel but the lyrics didn’t get finished in time to make the album. to be honest the words felt too vulnerable n I didn’t want anybody to hear them. When I finally found the chorus, I decided to record it with my band in September 2018. Bones Sloane played bass, Dave Mudie played drums, Dan Luscombe lay on the carpet and played the organ. They all sung wonderful backing vocals.

it’s available now in all the usual places, hope you like it and thank you for your support, love ya xo

ps. everybody here does not hate you. please reach out to somebody you trust or google your nearest mental health support lifeline if you need to talk to someone x

Barnett says she was inspired, in part, by the Jeff Buckley song “Everybody Here Wants You.”
