Courtney Barnett Shares Smile Real Nice, Her Catchy Theme Song For The New Harriet The Spy Series, With Her New Song, Smile
Courtney Barnett is currently busy promoting her upcoming album, Things Take Time, Take time, which will be released on November 12. Barnett has a different musical project coming to Apple TV+ on November 19: An animated television series based on the classic 1964 childrens novel Harriet The Spy will feature Barnet s theme song. Today, a trailer for the series was unveiled, as was Barnetts full theme song, Smile Real Nice.
The track, which runs for a little over two minutes, is spirited, rhythmic, and breezy rocker in the same vein as Barnetts other material. The hook is particularly catchy and is complimented by equally enthralling guitar work. All in all, TV theme songs are supposed to be immediately memorable and recognizable, and Barnetts song definitely ticks both of those boxes, while remaining true to her signature style.
Meanwhile, her new album from Things Take Time, TakeTime, Write A List Of Things To Look Forward To, was released a few weeks ago. She also gave fans the option to make their own mixes of that and other songs with a stem mixer on her website shortly after that.
