“Everybody Here Hates You”
Courtney Barnett has a new single out, and it is so unbelievably good. Barnett claims she did not include this song on her last album, and didn’t even finish it because:
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.
I am so glad she did. The lyrics are delivered in that great, storytelling style that only Barnett has. This is a great fun song. I also super appreciate her last statement about the song.
