Courtney Barnett Covers Kev Carmody's 'Just For You'

Courtney Barnett covers Kev Carmody's 'Just For You'.
Our eclectic team of writers from around Australia – and a couple beyond – with decades of combined experience and interest in all fields.

Courtney Barnett has released her beautiful cover of Indigenous Australian singer-songwriter Kev Carmody's love song 'Just For You'.

The song is part of an updated record of the 2007 Carmody tribute album 'Cannot Buy My Soul', which also features fresh covers from the likes of Jimmy Barnes, Kasey Chambers, Kate Miller-Heidke, Alice Skye, Electric Fields, and more.

"A real honour to be part of this project and to celebrate Kev's beautiful songwriting," Courtney says. "I think 'Just For You' is one of the most perfect love songs ever written."


"'Just for You', it's virtually a love song that I've directed at everybody, for everybody," Kev adds.

"It's trying to get right to the core to say even though we have our disagreements and stuff, I still love you all very much, and I love you as an individual very much.

"Courtney's presentation is so beautifully endearing and lifts my original to another plain. Her woman's presentation puts a whole, new perspective on the original lyrics."

'Cannot Buy My Soul: 2020 Edition', the songs of Kev Carmody, will be available from 21 August. Click here to pre-order.
