Australian singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett has recently released a version of John Cale’s “Close Watch” online. Cale first recorded the song in 1975 and it featured on the album Helen Of Troy – Barnett however has recorded the track to serve as a B-Side for her Record Store Day release of “Kim’s Caravan“.
Barnett has also recently released the video to “Kim’s Carvan” which shows the disintegration of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. Barnett recently discussed the emotional side to her new album Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit to NME magazine saying: “The album is a general overview of essentially a year of emotions – 12 months of f****** every day day, up, down, up, down. I dunno what a normal person has, but everyday I had a midlife crisis”. Listen to her version of “Close Watch” here.
