For the performance, Barnett delivered three tracks from his acclaimed 2021 LP Things take time, take time: “Rae Street”, “Write a List of Things to Look Forward To” and “Before You Gotta Go”, which she also played on The late show last month.
Previously Barnett Told rolling stone this Things take time, take time is to find “a kind of joy and gratitude, out of a kind of pain and sadness”.
“For one thing, nothing was happening to me last year,” she said. “But at the same time, there was so much going on! There’s this lyric in “Turning Green” about flowers in the weeds – as in, finding beauty where you least expect it. This is my continuing lesson for myself.
