Barns Courtney's new album out; on tour now

Barns Courtney has released his sophomore album, 404 (Capitol Records). Fans can get the album HERE and purchase tickets for the 404 Tour HERE. The HUNNA will be opening. See below for itinerary.

404 features the hits “99” – which has been streamed over 36 million times worldwide, entered the top 5 at Alternative radio and charted in the top 15 at AAA – and “You And I,” which is now climbing the charts. Barns Courtney recently took over the cover of the Alternative Playlist on YouTube. Check out his episode of “Beyond The Barricade,” which finds Barns Courtney paying a visit to the Jones sisters (seen on Netflix’s “Queer Eye”) at Jones Bar-B-Que, where he chows down before a gig in Kansas City.

The title of Barns Courtney’s new album will no doubt be familiar to anyone who’s ever searched for something online and found themselves face to face with nothing. 404 is an album that explores feelings of loss, inspired by life’s habit of throwing up its own error pages. Barns Courtney describes it as “a commentary on my own journey from awestruck naivet√© to the dark realization of adulthood.” These realities collide in the official video for lead single “99,” which can be viewed HERE.

The big picture, he adds, is “a weird alternative Narnia or Neverland, where all the tropes of your childhood have melted. From Pok√©mon to Nintendo 64, the core of my being is there: an unorthodox maelstrom of memories condensed down into this bizarre undulating world.”

Barns Courtney has amassed more than 650 million global streams and 63 million YouTube views. His acclaimed 2017 debut album, The Attractions Of Youth, has sold nearly 400,000 adjusted album units worldwide and contained the singles “Fire,” “Glitter & Gold” and “Golden Dandelions.”

He has performed on such television shows as “Conan,” “The Late Late Show with James Corden” and “Last Call with Carson Daly.” Named Artist of the Year at the Music Week Sync Awards 2018, his songs have been heard in films (The Founder, Burnt), television shows (“Suits,” “Lucifer,” Netflix’s “Safe”) and advertising campaigns (Showtime, Cadillac, Miller Lite).
