Courtney Barnett shares new track ‘Need A Little Time’

The clip finds Barnett going to space

Courtney Barnett has shared ‘Need A Little Time’, another new track from her upcoming album ‘Tell Me How You Really Feel’.

The typically jangly indie tune is accompanied by a video which sees Barnett head to outer space, leaving an alien civilisation in her wake. Danny Cohen directs the clip, which you can check out below.


The track follows  ‘I’m Not Your Mother, I’m Not Your Bitch’ and lead single ‘Nameless, Faceless’ in previewing her second solo record, out May 18.

The Australian singer-songwriter broke through back in 2015 with the critically-acclaimed LP ’Sometimes I Sit And Think And Sometimes I Just Sit’. Last YEAR, she released a collaborative album ‘Lotta Sea Lice’ with Kurt Vile, which was recorded in eight days over a stretch of 15 months.

Last year she told NME that her second album was set to be darker and more melancholy than her debut.

She also recently covered INXS‘ classic single ‘Never Tear Us Apart’ for the new Apple iPhone X ad.

Barnett’s rendition focusses on the intimacy of the track by stripping it right back to its bare essentials. The track accompanies the new advert, entitled ‘First Dance’ – which looks to celebrate same sex marriage.
