Courtney Barnett and Paul Kelly Cover Archie Roach’s ‘Charcoal Lane’

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.
