In October, we’ll be seeing Courtney Barnett in Milwaukee with special guest Waxahatchee opening the show. And, by the time Barnett will be in town, we’ll already be jamming to her new album, “Tell Me How You Really Feel” which is coming out on May 18.
The pre-sale will start on Thursday, March 22 at noon. To buy advance tickets, use the code: nameless. The regular sale will begin the next day, on Friday at 10 a.m.
We’ve already gotten a sneak peak of her upcoming album with two singles. The first, “Nameless, Faceless,” is an infectious punk rock anthem. Simmering with indignation and sarcasm, it examines the phenomenon of incessant and anonymous internet trolls. Through song, Barnett is using the medium she knows best to return fire.
“Need A Little Time” is the second preview we’ve seen of “Tell Me How You Really Feel.” With it, Barnett has revealed an exhilarating and unexpected shift. We know to expect a new-found directness with this record, a muscularity to the instrumentation, a tenderness in her voice and a boldness to the lyrics. It speaks to Barnett entering a remarkable new phase of her musical evolution.
Listen to both tracks below.
