The Breeders are in the middle of recording a new album — their first since 2008’s Mountain Battles — and apparently they got Courtney Barnett to stop by their Ohio studio while she was in town to perform at the Nelsonville Music Festival. According to a Facebook post, Barnett recorded some backup vocals for a new song that’s going to appear on the group’s upcoming album. Barnett and the band have some history: Barnett covered “Cannonball” back in 2014 for A.V. Club’s Undercover series, and Barnett and Kim Deal appeared together on a Talkhouse podcast last year. Check out some photos from the studio and a CD charmingly dubbed the “Barnett Quintet” below.
