    Summary quotation from Wikipedia:

    Barnett had spent a year writing songs for her album but only showed them to her band a week before they were recorded in order to capture a “fresh” sound. The song “Pedestrian at Best” was written “at the last minute” and the recorded version was the first time that Barnett had sung the words out loud. The album was largely recorded across eight days in Melbourne during April 2014 but the release was delayed due to touring commitments. Barnett unveiled the album at the 2015 South by Southwest festival and then embarked on a world tour that began in Paris.
