If Run the Jewels have any other, music-related, announcements soon, be sure to keep an eye out for it on my Upcoming Releases page!
This week, Courtney Barnett announced her sophomore solo album, Tell Me How You Really Feel.
Many of us were first introduced to Barnett with the release of The Sea of Split Peas, which was a re-release of her first two EPs, but it was her debut, Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit that made me first fall in love with her music. The record easily made it onto my list of favorite albums for 2015, I loved her conversational, seemingly train of thought style.
She continued that style last year, partnering up with another purveyor of the meandering lyric, Kurt Vile, for Lotta Sea Live. She teased this new album early in the week, releasing a trailer featuring some new music. She capped off the week with the official announcement, along with the first single, "Nameless, Faceless".
Tell Me How You Really Feel is set to be released on May 18.
