Courtney Barnett has shared a new single called “How to Boil an Egg”. It’s been released as part of the Split Singles Club, a series from Milk! Records, which was co-founded by Barnett. 

In a statement, Barnett describes this track as a “songwriting experiment” that won’t fit into her next album, which she’s currently working on in Australia. Read her full note below.

“I used to perform this song at all the open mics when I was 21. It never got recorded, so for personal posterity I updated it and made this version recently when I was bunkered up in the bush doing some demos for my next album. In the tradition of the Milk! Records compilation releases, like “Pickles From the Jar” or “Three Packs A Day,” I wanted to include a song of mine for Split Singles Club that was a tad left of album-centre. It’s a songwriting experiment that doesn’t really belong anywhere else.”
