Milk! Records has announced a forthcoming compilation which will feature recordings from the label’s various artists covering each other’s material. Titled, Milk On Milk, the compilation album will arrive on Friday, November 15th, and was previewed on Wednesday with the release of the lead single from Australian rocker Courtney Barnett, who covers Loose Tooth’s “Keep On”.
“We took Loose Tooth on tour around Europe in mid-2018 and every night I sat in my hotel room teaching myself how to play ‘Keep On'”. Barnett said in a statement to go with her new recording from the compilation. “This was before their album had come out but the song already felt like an old classic to me. I sat in bed with my guitar every night n I had to slow the song down and pull it apart a little bit n in that process it gained a certain weight where I heard the words differently. The chorus became a mantra and shook me up a bit.”
