Courtney Barnett Covers ‘Shivers’ By The Birthday Party/The Boys Next Door

Track Produced By Jack White. Out Soon Via White’s Third Man Records.

Australian’s favourite rambling lyricist Courtney Barnett has covered post-punk ballad ‘Shivers’, originally recorded by Nick Cave’s The Birthday Party under the moniker The Boys Next Door. The cover was recorded and produced by Jack White and will see release as part of White’s Third Man Records Blue Series.

“I think when I started listening to Nick Cave and then started researching all the other bands [he was in], I really loved that song ‘Shivers’ that the Birthday Party did,” Barnett said of the track. “And then I found out that Rowland S. Howard wrote it. And then there’s the version of it in Dogs In Space, and I just think that’s such a great song.”
