Following her debut album A Suitable Girl, Australian pop rock singer Ali Barter has announced her new album Hello, I’m Doing My Best, a revealing collection of songs that track her most formative relationships: to her body, her instincts, sobriety and the old vices it counteracts, and the people she loves most.
Hello, I’m Doing My Best is set for release on Oct. 18, via Inertia Music / [PIAS]. Ali has also revealed her new single "Backseat," which premiered on Consequence of Sound yesterday.
In addition, Ali has announced her first-ever global tour. You can pre-order the album and lock in your tickets via alibartermusic.com.
Hello, I’m Doing My Best is a sentiment most can relate to. From her breakout single "Girlie Bits" to recent cut "UR A Piece Of Shit," Barter spins sobering honesty through sugary pop songs. On her method, Barter explains, “I really connect to the idea that you can say something really controversial, but if you say it in a nice way people are more likely to listen to it.”
Since winning the triple j Unearthed competition and releasing her debut album in 2017, the former choir girl has enjoyed support at home from triple j, FBi Radio, The Australian, Rolling Stone, and Tone Deaf, while Beats 1, Clash, and The 405 have all thrown international support behind her.
