The player, which functions similarly to Kanye West’s previously announced Donda Stem player, enables users to “listen and play” along with tracks from Barnett’s third album.
So far created and designed by Raphael Ong and Sean Lim this player allows people to replace ‘Rae Street’, ‘Before You Gotta Go’ and ‘Right a List of Things to Look Forward To’, which are the only Songs released from the album so far. It is believed that the remainder of the LP will be available for reworking upon release on November 12.
The player gives users the option to adjust the volume of various percussion, guitar and vocals in the mix of songs.
The Australian singer-songwriter admitted last month that there are similarities between the music video for his single “Before You Gotta Go” and the Melbourne act Quivers clip for “You’re Not Always on My Mind”.
Both music videos feature respective musicians going into the field and recording audio samples from the natural world. Additionally, the lyrics to Barnett’s song, “You’re Always on My Mind”, bear the same title as the Quivers song.
On social media, Barnett promoted the Quivers video, saying: “I thought I came up with a beautiful, original idea for a video, but it looks like I was wrong.
“I want to introduce you to the Melbourne Band [Quivers] and director [Nina Renee] Who had the same idea before me,” she wrote. “Any resemblance is purely coincidental and if I had seen this clip when I was making mine I would have completely changed my concept or the way we discovered it.”
