Courtney Barnett Shares Powerful, Minimalist Video For Her Kev Carmody Cover, ‘Just For You’

Courtney Barnett has blessed us with a music video for her gorgeous cover of Indigenous Australian singer-songwriter Kev Carmody’s ‘Just For You’.

Lifted from the upcoming and updated reissue of the 2007 Carmody tribute album Cannot Buy My Soul — which features new tracks from Jimmy Barnes, Kasey Chambers, Kate Miller-Heidke, Alice Skye, Electric Fields and more — the clip was directed by the album’s producer, Sian Darling, and filmed in one take, starring Courtney and her trusty doggo, Rosa.

Darling says of the video: “Uncle Kev says that these are simple lyrics trying to get right to the core, that it’s a love song directed at everybody. For him, the message is, ‘Even though we have our disagreements, I still love you all very much. And I love you as an individual very much’.

“I want the video to illustrate the power from the simplicity of Uncle Kev’s lyrics and intentions, and the exceptional tenderness in Courtney’s expression of them,” she says.

Cannot Buy My Soul: The Songs of 2020 Kev Carmody, 2020 Edition is set for release on Friday, 21st August.
