Kurt Vile and Courtney Barnett Talk With Rolling Stone

Courtney Barnett

Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile sat down with Rolling Stone to talk about their upcoming collaborative album:

“It’s a scary process, taking a half-written song to someone,” Barnett says. “I didn’t want him to be like, ‘God, this sucks. What have I gotten myself into?'” But they hit it off immediately. “The vibes were strong,” says Vile. “We discovered we could finish things on the quick, like an outlaw country singer, or Neil Young.” Adds Barnett, “We were mucking around, eating pizza, and we had all these songs all of a sudden.”

The album, Lotta Sea Lice, will be out in October.
