“I’m never like, ‘I’m going to write a vulnerable album,” Barnett tells The Ringer. “I just write what’s around me and what’s in my head and what I’m obsessed with. Writing is how I communicate the shit in my head. It’s the best way for me to verbalize my thoughts and lay them out, to visualize what’s going on. I guess that’s vulnerable?”

Things Take Time, Take Time marks the follow-up to 2018’s Tell Me How You Really Feel. It features previously released singles “Rae Street,” “Before You Gotta Go,” “Write A List of Things to Look Forward To,” and “If I Don’t Hear From You Tonight.”

Courtney Barnett also recently launched an online “interactive stem mixer” on her website. The new feature allows users to “listen & play around” with songs from her forthcoming album, Things Take Time, Take Time. Raphael Ong and Sean Lim built and designed the stem mixer. It revolves around sliders that allow users to adjust the volume of the percussion, guitars, and vocals in the mix of album tracks.
