Courtney Barnett has given us a bit of new music since dropping her breakthrough debut album last year and she’s already thinking about its follow-up. We caught up with her the morning of her set at Coachella’s first weekend to see what she's been up to.
“I’ve been writing short stories over the last couple years which are a bit more fictitious,” she says. “Some of them have been turning into songs.” When she’s not touring, Barnett has been kicking it around her home in the suburbs of Melbourne, Australia, taking walks, pondering the meaning of life, and thinking about what’s next. She isn’t ready to say when to expect the album (it appears to still be in its early stages), but she's definitely been busy.
