2015 was a massive year for courtney barnett. The Melbourne-based artist released her debut album Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit to rave reviews, toured the world and secured a GRAMMY® nomination for Best New Artist.

Barnett made several national TV appearances, performing on Ellen, The Tonight Show, Conan and CBS This Saturday Morning. She also played several major festivals around the country including Bonnaroo, Pitchfork, Newport Folk Festival, and more.

Her incredible year was capped off opening for Blur at Hollywood Bowl and Madison Square Garden and receiving her first ever GRAMMY® nomination in the prestigious Best New Artist category.

Barnett will be returning to the US this spring to play a series of festivals and headlining dates including Coachella and Governors Ball which were announced last week.



Today we get a new song from the 28-year-old, titled "3 Packs A Day", the track is yet another insight in the world of Courtney Barnett and her unique and poignant every day observations. "3 Packs A Day" will be released as part of an upcoming Milk! Records compilation, the label that she runs, owns and releases her music on in Australia.


While in her hometown, she was part of a special performance as part of the Melbourne Festival, celebrating the 40th anniversary of Patti Smith's Horses. Barnett was joined on stage by Jen Cloher, Magic Dirt's Adalita, and The Drones' Gareth Liddiar to perform the album in it's entirety. Barnett put her own stamp on iconic tracks "Redondo Beach" and "Break it Up".



This past October in LA, Barnett sat down with Song Exploder to talk through her song Depreston. Here we hear her breakdown the lyrics, melodies and recording of the track in great detail. A must listen for anyone who is a fan of the song.
