Courtney Barnett has appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, treating viewers worldwide to an acoustic performance of ‘Sunday Roast’.

Performing from her bedroom as part of the shows ‘At Home’ format, Barnett dished up a rendition of the ‘Tell Me How You Really Feel’ closer that is so tasty it might just rival your Nana’s best ‘Sunday Roast’ offering.

The Aussie singer-songwriter’s distinctive style is a natural fit for the intimacy of the ‘At Home’ format. Her unique lyrical approach and phrasing proving even more evocative than on the tracks studio version.

While this is Courtney’s first appearance on ‘At Home’, she is a familiar face on the Tonight Show having made four prior appearances on the show.

Last seen by Tonight Show viewers in 2018, when she let rip on Tell Me How You Really Feel‘ lead single ‘Nameless Faceless’.  Courtney’s impressive reading of The Grateful Dead’s ‘Speedway Boogie’ on was the talk of the Twitterverse in 2016.

That memorable moment followed a stellar version of ‘Pedestrian at Best’ in 2015 and of course her iconic breakthrough performance of ‘Avant Gardener’ in 2014.

Courtney Barnett has been keeping busy during the COVID-19 era, having performed as part of the ‘Music From the Home Front’ on Anzac Day AND the State of Music Live Stream series.

Courtney is also teaming up with fellow Milk! Records, artist Evelyn Ida Morris, to write a soundtrack for the upcoming film ‘Brazen Hussies.’ The anticipated documentary on the Women’s Liberation movement in Australia.  The crowdfunded project is currently in post-production.

The quality of Courtney’s ‘At Home’ performance will come as no surprise to many, especially those who have listened to last year’s  ‘Courtney Barnett: MTV Unplugged Live in Melbourne’ release.
