'Lotta Sea Lice' marks quite the rock collaboration we've been waiting for without even realising it; Kurt Vile and Courtney Barnett seriously do the genre justice with their new album, especially with their classic-sounding first single 'Over Everything'.
Kurt and Courtney have united for a joint project that sees instant chemistry between two people who are both friends and fans of one another. They have just launched a black and white video directed by Danny Cohen for their new single 'Over Everything', which sees them lip-synching along to the other person's lines in Victoria, New Jersey, Melbourne and Philadelphia.
The album sees the pair reunite with Mick Thomas and Jim White of the Dirty Three, Stella Mozgawa from Warpaint and Mick Harvey, all also playing on the record. They'll be taking the project on the road in a sold-out tour this Fall, appearing in cities like San Diego, Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago, Toronto, New York, Washington DC, Nashville and Dallas.
'Lotta Sea Lice' is set to be released on October 13th 2017 through labels Marathon Artists, Matador, Milk! Recordings and Mom & Pop.
