Courtney Barnett to release expanded debut album, Jack White produced single


Courtney Barnett will release an expanded version of her 2015 debut album ‘Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit‘ on November 6th.

The new version is to include previously unreleased live recordings of ‘History Eraser‘ and ‘Avant Gardener‘ laid down at New York’s Electric Lady Studios, as well as a cover of John Cale‘s ‘Close Watch‘, a poster of the album artwork and personal polaroids.

It’s being led by a Jack White-produced, limited 7″ single entitled ‘Boxing Day Blues Revisited‘, out via Third Man Records on October 16th.

“Courtney Barnett: millennial,” our album review reads. “But also a lachrymose raconteur, a teller of stories which will do something as awkwardly naive as plucking the heartstrings one minute, then rejecting fiercely being objectified in the next.”

“For someone who has the twenty first century’s kitchen sink dramas so affectionately charted in her prose, it’s a little odd that her music is rooted in those fuddy-duddy Gen X bands like Pavement, The Breeders and in places female Brit Poppers such as Elastica.”
