Infectious, barnstorming, and deadpan ‘How To Boil An Egg’ is a standalone, brand new track from singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett. Recorded as a contribution to a collaboration between two of Australia’s leading independent labels, Milk! Records (the label which she founded with partner Jen Cloher), and Bedroom Suck.

‘How To Boil An Egg’ is the result of studio experimentations where Barnett played every instrument herself, and is a reworked version of one of the first songs she ever wrote.

In her own words: “I used to perform this song at all the open-mics when I was 21. It never got recorded, so for personal-posterity I updated it, and made this version recently, when I was bunkered up in the bush, doing some demos for my next album. In tradition of the Milk! Records compilation releases, like ‘Pickles From The Jar’ or ‘Three Packs A Day’, I wanted to include a song of mine for Split Singles Club that was a tad left of album-centre. It’s a songwriting experiment that doesn’t really belong anywhere else.
