Courtney Barnett has released an acoustic cover of Indigenous Australian singer-songwriter Kev Carmody’s ‘Just For You’. It’s taken from a tribute album of Carmody’s songs titled Cannot Buy My Soul, which was originally released in 2007 and will be reissued with new songs on August 21 through EMI Australia, featuring Jimmy Barnes, Kasey Chambers, Kate Miller-Heidke, Alice Skye, Electric Fields, and more. Listen to it below.
“I’ve only met her just lately, and, very impressed with this young woman, Courtney Barnett,” Carmody said in a video posted on Barnett’s Instagram. “‘Just for You,’ it’s virtually a love song that I’ve directed at everybody, for everybody … It’s trying to get right to the core to say even though we have our disagreements and stuff, I still love you all very much, and I love you as an individual very much.”
A few days, Barnett collaborated with Phoebe Bridgers for a cover Gillian Welch’s ‘Everything Is Free’ at the Newport Folk Festival’s virtual weekend.
