Courtney Barnett and Paul Kelly Cover Archie Roach’s ‘Charcoal Lane’
The track comes from an upcoming reissue of Roach's 1990 album of the same name
Warner Music Australia will be reissuing Charcoal Lane, the 1990 album from Australian singer/songwriter Archie Roach, in a 25th Anniversary edition. The reissue will come with a number of covers of Roach’s work as bonus tracks, the most notable perhaps coming from SPIN favorite Courtney Barnett, who dueted with Roach collaborator Paul Kelly on a lovely version of the album’s title track. You can hear the new version here, courtesy of The Guardian, and check out the deluxe edition of Charcoal Lane on November 6.
