Australian singer/songwriter/guitarist Courtney Barnett released her debut full-length album, Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit, via Mom + Pop in 2015 and landed at #6 on Under the Radar‘s Top 100 Albums of 2015 list. Now she has shared a new song, “How to Boil An Egg.” You can stream it below or buy it as a 7-inch via Split Singles Club, which is a series which is put together by Milk! Records (a label co-founded by Barnett and Jen Cloher) and Bedroom Suck. Subscribe to Split Singles Club here.

Barnett had this to say about the song in a statement: “I used to perform this song at all the open-mics when I was 21. It never got recorded, so for personal-posterity I updated it and made this version recently when I was bunkered up in the bush doin some demos for my next album. In tradition of the Milk! Records compilation releases, like ‘Pickles From the Jar’ or ‘Three Packs a Day,’ I wanted to include a song of mine for Split Singles Club that was a tad left of album-centre. It’s a songwriting experiment that doesn’t really belong anywhere else.”
