Courtney Barnett is looking for deeper conversations on new single ‘Write A List of Things to Look Forward To’

Courtney Barnett has shared a video for her poignant new single, “Write A List of Things to Look Forward To.”

The new track serves as a sort of love letter to friends and friendship. It sees Barnett singing of deeper conversations. In fact, “Write A List of Things To Look Forward To” is named after a technique that one of Barnett’s friends encouraged her to use to get out of a depressive funk. The accompanying Christina Xing-directed video is wholesome and tender. It sees Barnett as a sender and recipient of gifts and letters.

“I found a deeper communication with people in my life – deeper conversations,” Barnett explains. “And a new level of gratitude for friendships that had been there for so long that I had maybe taken for granted.”

“Write A List of Things to Look Forward To” comes from Barnett’s forthcoming album, Things Take Time, Take Time, out November 12th. It follows previously released singles “Before You Gotta Go” and “Rae Street.”
