Courtney Barnett has shared her new single ‘Before You Gotta Go’.

The Australian songwriter’s new album ‘Things Take Time, Take Time’ is incoming, a return marked by a desire to further understand herself.

As she puts it: “Sometimes I try to say everything in one song, or put my whole belief system into a vox pop, but you just can’t do that — it’s impossible…”

New single ‘Before You Gotta Go’ is marked by this introspection, with Courtney’s half-spoken vocal draped in melancholy.

There’s a tender beauty to her lyricism, one that seems to sketch out the contradictory feelings behind a break up.

She sings: “If something were to happen my dear, I wouldn’t want the last words you hear to be unkind…”

Tune in now.
