Courtney Barnett is back with the announcement of her next album, Things Take Time, Take Time. The follow-up to 2018’s Tell Me How You Really Feel is due out November 12th via Mom+Pop. Along with the news, the Aussie singer-songwriter has shared the music video for her twangy new single “Rae Street.”
Things Take Time, Take Time is Barnett’s third proper full-length. Written over the course of two years, she then recorded the album in late 2020 and early 2021 with producer Stella Mozgawa, known for work with Warpaint, Cate le Bon, and Kurt Vile.
If “Rae Street” is any indication, the album will see Barnett lean into her more relaxed, country-fied mode, though with the same sense of acerbic wit that’s made her an indie rock star: “Time is money, and money is no man’s friend,” she croons on the song’s chorus. The music video stars Barnett as multiple versions of herself living in blissful suburbia. Check out “Rae Street” abelow.
After sticking to remote performances over the past year or so, Barnett will be taking Things Take Time, Take Time on the road with a North American tour beginning in November. You can see her schedule here. The musician also recently launched a free digital archive that compiles career-spanning live performances and rarities.
