Barnett’s third album Things Take Time, Take Time is a remarkable artistic step forward featuring contributions from indie luminaries Stella Mozgawa, Cate Le Bon, and Vagabon. Led by first single ‘Rae Street’ and ‘If I Don’t Hear From You Tonight’, the new album sees Barnett operating at the peak of her powers, consolidating her reputation as a storyteller of intimate, poignant Australian tales.
