Courtney Barnett Releases Track “Depreston”

Courtney Barnett Releases New Track "Depreston", her debut LP 'Sometimes I Sit And Think' comes Out 3/24

Courtney Barnett will release Sometimes I Sit And Think, her debut LP, later this month. Today, she has shared her song “Depreston” which contains some of her most poetic imagery, in it she details several very specific scenes which actually point a much larger picture about life & death and the decisions/situations we find ourselves in when moving into responsibility and adulthood. It juxtaposes the sadness of the old lady who lived in the house with a disability, against the blunt pragmatism of a real-estate agent. “Aren’t the pressed metal ceilings great” – “you could knock it down and just start rebuilding.”

Courtney Barnett and her band The Courtney Barnetts will be returning to the US this month and will be playing SXSW. Her full lineup of shows will be released shortly. Courtney is also teaming up with Tumblr for a special day party down in Austin where she will host a gallery-style exhibition of her original artwork as well as play a live set. The full SXSW schedule will be announced in the coming week.
