Australian singer Courtney Barnett’s debut album Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit has been very successful. So much so, she has just released a new 7″ single on Third Man Records — “Boxing Day Blues (Revisited)“, and that’s getting some very nice reviews too.
And it’s an interesting song, as it starts out upbeat and a bit chirpy (chirpy for the melancholic Barnett anyway) but it soon turns into a bit more of a sad number, especially when you listen to the lyrics — “What do you feel for me anyway?“. Well, the word ‘blues’ is in the title, so what do you expect?
‘Boxing Day Blues (Revisited)’ was produced by Jack White and recorded at his Third Man Studios in Nashville. Listen to it below.
