Courtney Barnett has shared a new single titled ‘Write a List of Things to Look Forward To’.
The third single to be lifted from Barnett’s forthcoming album Things Take Time, Take Time is a warm, open-hearted cut that sees the singer-songwriter reflecting on small acts of survival and the relationships that hold us up.
“I found a deeper communication with people in my life – deeper conversations,” Barnett comments of the phase that inspired the new song. “And a new level of gratitude for friendships that had been there for so long that I had maybe taken for granted.”
‘Write a List of Things to Look Forward To’ arrives alongside a video directed by Christina Xing that’s situated around Barnett sending and receiving letters, echoing the song’s lyrics. Watch that below.
Barnett announced These Things Take Time, Take Time back in July alongside lead single ‘Rae Street’. The follow-up to 2018’s Tell Me How You Really Feel is set to arrive on Friday, 12th November, and was written over a two-year period with collaborator Stella Mozgawa. Last month, Barnett released second single ‘Before You Gotta Go’.
