Courtney Barnett Releases New Single 'City Looks Pretty' and Announces Australian & New Zealand Tour
This week, Courtney Barnett blessed us with another banger of a single 'City Looks Pretty', the third single from her highly anticipated album Tell Me How You Really Feel.
Following on from the focused fury of 'Nameless, Faceless' and the gorgeously contemplative 'Need a Little Time', the new single takes Barnett in an entirely different direction. 'City Looks Pretty' has Barnett experimenting with new song structures while delivering one of her most exhilarating guitar performances to date. It's metronomic drive and sqeualing lead guitar provide the remarkable sonic foundation from which Barnett sings a melodic exploration of friendship, place and home- "friends treat you like a stranger", Barnett sings, "And strangers treat you like their best friend."
A Record Store Day release of 'City Looks Pretty' will be available TODAY with the 12' double A side also featuring the beautiful 'Sunday Roast', also taken from the forthcoming record.
To celebrate the release of Tell Me How You Really Feel, Barnet also announces her biggest Australian tour to date, taking in shows at The Sydney Opera House and Melbourne's Festival Hall amongst others. These Australian shows will follow a 3-month global tour taking in iconic venues and festivals through Europe, UK and North America.
Tell Me How You Really Feel will be released on May 18th through Barnett's own label Milk! Records and Remote Control Records.
