Indie darlings Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile have individually contributed to their genre by bringing new twists to guitar-based rock. From Australia and the USA respectively, it's arguable that few musicians have the credibility and ability to turn in a tune as these two peers. It makes sense then, that the two artists are working on something together at the moment.
Vile and Barnett have recently been sharing pictures of themselves in the studio together. The website of Australia's Newmarket Studios may have accidentally-on-purpose spilled the beans on the project by announcing that the two are working on a "forthcoming compilation" together.
The studio used its Instagram to share a picture of the two artists, along with producer Callum John Barter, which mentions how great their "collaboration" is going to be. It's unclear if the artists are contributing just one song to a compilation, or if they're compiling a compilation… actually it's all very unclear, no one (but the artists and studio) really knows what's going on!
However, the good news is that something is happening, and fans of the two artists are sure to be as excited as we are by a collaboration that seems like it's been inevitable for a long time.
