The singer-guitarist recently performed Patti Smith's 'Horses' live, in full, at the Melbourne Festival
The performance took place at a special tribute concert held by Barnett to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Patti Smith’s debut album ‘Horses.’
Held at Melbourne’s Town Hall in October, Barnett played ‘Horses’ in full and was joined by Jen Cloher, Magic Dirt’s Adalita and The Drones’ Gareth Liddiard for the one-off show.
Now, Barnett’s own label Milk! Records have released footage from the evening, including a full performance of ‘Redondo Beach’.

Barnett released her debut album ‘Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit’ in March. Speaking to NME earlier this year, she explained how the LP reflected the last year of her life.
“The album is a general overview of essentially a year of emotions – 12 months of fucking every day day, up, down, up, down. I dunno what a normal person has, but everyday I had a midlife crisis.”
Barnett and her band play their biggest UK headline show to date at London’s Forum on November 25 with gigs in Wolverhampton, Manchester, Liverpool, Glasgow and Bristol also confirmed.
