Australian singer & songwriter, Courtney Barnett has dropped her new song, “If I Don’t Hear From You Tonight.” Watch the official video below.
She sings, “Stars in the sky, are gonna die, eventually it’s fine. / Just like a lonely satellite, drifting for a little while. / If I don’t hear from you tonight, if I don’t hear from you tonight.”
The new song shines with twangy lead guitars and soaring vocal harmonies, a dry and punchy bassline thumping along in the background. It arrives with a video fittingly set in the Californian desert.
In a press release, Barnett explained that her latest single was written after she’d had a change of heart towards the tried-and-true concept of the love song.
“I think my stance in the past was like, ‘There’s so many love songs and they don’t mean anything,’ but there’s something really special about zooming in on a moment and capturing it,” she said. “[The song] comes from the state of where my head was at – trying to communicate honestly instead of keeping [my feelings] guarded.”

Thursday 10 – Perth, The Astor
Thursday 17 – Melbourne, The Forum
Saturday 26 – Brisbane, The Tivoli
