Australian singer + songwriter Courtney Barnett announced that Things Take Time, Take Time will be coming out on November 12th via Mom+Pop Music/Marathon Artists. This assemblage of emotive material materialized over the last two years of writing and recording and recorded back and forth between Melbourne and Sydney, Australia, said the songstress. Producer and drummer Stella Mozgawa (Warpaint, Tom Jones, Regina Spektor) added her contributions. This project follows the alterative-indie singer’s 2018 sophomore record Tell Me How You Really Feel.

In anticipation of the fall release, Barnett released the first single, “Rae Street.” It’s a traditional folk ballad showing off the singer + songwriter’s distinctive offerings and original lyricism. Additionally, Barnett collaborated with WAM Bleakley to produce a video clip with coinciding the album announcement.

She sings,“Next door the kids run amok/ The mother screams, ‘Don’t you ever shut up?’/ And there’s one thing I know/ The sun will rise today and tomorrow.”


Shortly after releasing her newest album, the alternative-indie songwriter will be heading out on tour beginning on November 29th in Las Vegas and ending February 12th in Toronto while hitting significant stops in Philadelphia, San Diego, Chicago, Detroit, and many more along the way. Special guests Julia Jacklin, Bartees Strange, Shamir, Bedouine, and Warpaint, will be opening, each on selected dates.
