Indigenous Australian singer/songwriter Archie Roach released his debut solo album, Charcoal Lane, in 1990. Next month, as The Guardian points out, Warner Music Australia is reissuing a remastered 25th anniversary edition of the album, which will also come with a second disc featuring five covers of his songs by other Australian musicians. One of said musicians is the great Australian rocker Courtney Barnett, who teamed up with one of the album’s original producers, Paul Kelly, to record a new version of the title track. Listen to that below.
The 25th anniversary edition of Charcoal Lane is out 11/6 via Warner Music Australia.
