Courtney Barnett is going to release a new covers compilation

Courtney Barnett is going to release a new covers compilation.

The release features artists from her Milk! Records label taking on each other's tracks, with her own contribution a cover of Loose Tooth's 'Keep On'.

The album's producer, Anna Laverty says: “I originally turned down my dream gig of producing the Milk on Milk album because my baby was due that week, I literally had no other choice. But when I heard back from the Milk crew saying we could move the recording schedule a week earlier I knew it was meant to be.

"There were two songs on the album (Courtney’s version of Keep On and The Finks’s DOG FM) where I worked on the original version and then also the new cover so it was an interesting challenge to bring new production values to the same song but with a different band.

"We recorded 7 of the bands over 4 days sharing backline and in true Milk fashion a bunch of the musicians. It was a career highlight for me and an album I’ll cherish forever."

'Milk On Milk' is out on 15th November; the tracklisting reads:

1. Tiny Ruins - Tell Her She's Dreamin' (jade imagine cover)
2. Courtney Barnett - Keep On (Loose Tooth cover)
3. Hachiku - Body Language (The Finks cover)
4. Jen Cloher - The Body Appears (Evelyn Ida Morris cover)
5. The Finks - DOG FM (East Brunswick All Girls Choir cover)
6. Jade Imagine - Dream Wave (Tiny Ruins cover)
7. Evelyn Ida Morris - Nameless, Faceless (Courtney Barnett cover)
8. East Brunswick All Girls Choir - Polar Bears (Hachiku cover)
9. Loose Tooth - Name in Lights (Jen Cloher cover)
