On Friday a new Milk! Records compilation called “Milk On Milk”. It features my version of “Keep On” (written by my friends Loose Tooth) n playing with me on that recording is Jen Sholakis (drums), Dave Mudie (bass) and some extra vocals by Anika (Hachiku).

This is the third compilation we have made as a label (the first two featured my tracks ‘Pickles From The Jar’ and ‘Three Packs A Day’). Barnett and Jen Cloher asked every artist to pick their favourite song by a label-mate and record their own version of it.

It includes some truly amazing tracks from Tiny Ruins, Jade Imagine, Jen Cloher (ft. The Letter String Quartet), Hachiku, Evelyn Ida Morris, East Brunswick All Girls Choir, The Finks, and Loose Tooth. It was (mostly) produced, engineered & mixed by Anna Laverty at (mostly) Audrey Studios in Coburg!

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.”
