Courtney Barnett will release her third studio album, ‘Things Take Time’ (co-produced by Stella Mozgawa who has worked with Warpaint, Cate le Bon, Kurt Vile) on November 12 via Mom+Pop Music / Marathon Artists. So far, the Australian artist has shared 2 singles, ‘Before You Gotta Go’ and ‘Rae Street,’ but she went a step further with this new website: An interactive stem mixer site which allow you to isolate, mute, mix and remix the two tracks. You just have to upload one of the songs and play around with the different stems, you can mute all the instruments and listen to Courtney’s isolated vocals for example. There’s even the possibility to make loops.

The cool thing is that the site will expand with more tracks when the album is released in November.

Yesterday, Barnett has also shared a video for one of the 2 tracks, ‘Before You Gotta Go,’ a quiet slow burn tune with an almost psychedelic-krautrock vibe while the clip shows Courtney trying to record nature sounds in the video. The video, directed by Claudia Sangiorgi Dalimore, casts Barnett as an ethnographer trying to record sounds from diverse landscapes, horses, dogs, trees, mushrooms and insects, while giant versions of herself emerge from the ground or the sky. Dalimore had this to say about the clip: ‘Making this clip was an interesting experience for me. I love how brilliantly simple Courtney’s idea was, it brought real joy shooting part of it together, just me, her and my DOP with the other part being two long days directing over zoom across the Tasman Sea. I watch it now and feel that sense of peace, that potent calm you can only get immersed in the beauty of nature.’
