Lotta Sea Lice is the result of 8 days in the studio spread over almost 15 months when Courtney and Kurt’s respective touring schedules allowed for them to be in the same place at the same time.

We started bumping into each other on the festival circuit all around the world and we became friends. He hit me up when he was coming to Melbourne again. He said he had a song that he thought we could work on together. We started sending demos back & forth.

I started writing a tune that I hoped she’d do with me one day. I was doing promo for B’lieve I’m Going Down and being photographed in Philly with my acoustic and literally writing a song I had in mind for her (“Over Everything”) with the idea of alternating lines and everything. She agreed (to collaborate) and wrote a song too (“Let It Go”). That was that!
