  • Lyrics
  • "Sunday Roast" finds Courtney Barnett getting support from friends as they gather around the dinner table. "The overall idea in that song is community," she told the BBC. "We tend to base our lives around food; and lots of conversations happen at meals. That sense of friendship and love revolves around it, in a way."
  • Barnett originally wrote the guitar part for this contemplative, tender tune at the age of 13.
  • Courtney Barnett told Uncut magazine the song came from her "getting together with friends each week - we'd rotate houses and take turns making the roast."

    The singer added that she personally eats fish but not meat. However, she's "got lots of veggie friends, so there will be a nut roast as well as a meat one, potatoes, turnips and carrots, cauliflower cheese, sprouts."
