New Song Of The Day: Courtney Barnett – City Looks Pretty

Its a Courtney Barnett kind of day!

Along with announcing two NZ shows in Wellington and Auckland, Courtney Barnett has released a new song today. City Looks Pretty is from Courtney’s upcoming new album, Tell Me How You Really Feel due out May 18th.

Here’s the record company blurb:

Today Courtney Barnett shares ‘City Looks Pretty’, the third single from her highly anticipated album Tell Me How You Really Feel.

Following on from the focussed 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 squealing 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”. 

To celebrate the release of Tell Me How You Really Feel, Barnett today also announces her biggest Australian tour to date, taking in shows at The Sydney Opera House and Melbourne’s Festival Hall as well as all ages shows in both Auckland and Wellington in August. These shows will follow a 3-month global tour taking in iconic venues and festivals through EuropeUK 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 via Rhythmethod in New Zealand.
