Courtney Barnett Releases Second Track From Upcoming Album

The Australian rocker has shared another song from her new album

By: Brandon Sims


Courtney Barnett released a new song on Thursday entitled “Need a Little Time.” The jam is a pop-infused indie-rock tune that features the rich chord progressions on guitar that Barnett is known for, coupled with a catchy sing-along falsetto chorus that rings out the line “I need a little time out from me.” Down below, you can check out the neat space-themed music video, directed by Danny Cohen.

This latest song is the second single to be released from her upcoming album, Tell Me How You Really Feel. Last month, she released the first glimpse of the new record with the debut of the first single “Nameless, Faceless.” The new 10-track LP will be released on May 18 through Mom + Pop, Marathon Artists, and Barnett’s own Milk! Records.

Barnett has kept busy over the last six months, as the new record comes on the heels of her collaborative album with Kurt Vile, Lotta Sea Lice, which was released last October. The two promoted the album with a 30-day tour that hit select major cities across North America.

Continuing her busy streak, Barnett has plans to set out on a U.S. tour in support of the new album that includes a number of festival dates. Some notable planned appearances include Fort Worth’s Fortress Festival and Atlanta’s Shaky Knees Festival this spring, and BBC Biggest Weekend and All Points East festival in England in the middle of the summer. You can see all tour dates below after the video.
