Australian singer/songwriter/guitarist Courtney Barnett has shared a new cover of Indegineous Australian singer/songwriter Kev Carmody’s “Just For You.” The cover comes as the first release off of Cannot Buy My Soul, a new extended version of a 2007 tribute album to Carmody out August 21. The new extended album will also feature new tracks from Jimmy Barnes, Kasey Chambers, Kate Miller-Heidke, Alice Skye, Electric Fields, and more.

Carmody’s original “Just For You” first appeared on his 2015 compilation album Recollections… Reflections… (A Journey). Check out the cover below.

Barnett recently teamed up with Phoebe Bridgers to cover Gillian Welch’s “Everything is Free” for the virtual Newport Folk Festival.

Barnett’s last album, Tell Me How You Really Feel, was released back in May 2018 via Mom + Pop/Marathon Artists/Milk! Records. It was our Album of the Week and one our Top 100 Albums of 2018.
