It's been a good week for Courtney Barnett. The Aussie artist teamed up with Jack White for a new single that will be released as part of Third Man Records' Blue Series. White produced the 7", due out Oct. 16. "Boxing Day Blues Revisited," the single's A-side, is an epilogue to "Boxing Day Blues," the last track on 2015's Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit. The B-side is a haunting cover of The Boys Next Door's "Shivers," written by The Birthday guitarist and fellow Australian Rowland S. Howard.
Barnett also received eight nominations from the Australian Record Industry Awards (ARIA), the most of any artist this year. She's been nominated for Album Of The Year, Best Female Artist and Best Rock Album, among others, and she accepted her first ARIA for Best Cover Art for Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit.
