Courtney Barnett is going to release a new covers compilation.
The release features artists from her Milk! Records label taking on each other’s tracks, with her own contribution a cover of Loose Tooth’s ‘Keep On’.
The album’s producer, Anna Laverty says: “I originally turned down my dream gig of producing the Milk on Milk album because my baby was due that week, I literally had no other choice. But when I heard back from the Milk crew saying we could move the recording schedule a week earlier I knew it was meant to be.
“There were two songs on the album (Courtney’s version of Keep On and The Finks’s DOG FM) where I worked on the original version and then also the new cover so it was an interesting challenge to bring new production values to the same song but with a different band.
“We recorded 7 of the bands over 4 days sharing backline and in true Milk fashion a bunch of the musicians. It was a career highlight for me and an album I’ll cherish forever.”
‘Milk On Milk’ is out on 15th November; the tracklisting reads:
1. Tiny Ruins – Tell Her She’s Dreamin’ (jade imagine cover)
