Courtney Marie Andrews announces new album & tour, shares title track

Courtney Marie Andrews

Since releasing 2016’s very good Honest Life, Courtney Marie Andrews has put out a collaboration with Will Oldham for Our First 100 Days and covered “I’ll Be Home For Christmas,” and she has now announced a new album. It’s called May Your Kindness Remain, and it’ll be out on March 23 via Fat Possum Records/Mama Bird Recording Co. It was produced by Mark Howard (who’s worked with such iconic artists as Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Lucinda Williams, and Willie Nelson), and it features Dillon Warnek (electric guitar), Daniel Walter (organ, Wurlitzer, accordion), Charles Wicklander (piano, Wurlitzer), William Mapp (drums, percussion), Alex Sabel (bass) and C.C. White (background vocals).

Courtney says of the album, “A lot of people are poor in America—and because of those unattainable goals, they’re also mentally unstable, or sad, or depressed or unfulfilled. A lot of people—myself included at some point in my life—are loving somebody through this. That’s sort of the theme of the record: coming to terms with depression and the reality of the world we’re living in.”

The first single is the title track, which is a gorgeous dose of Courtney’s Joni Mitchell-esque folk that brings in some unexpected distorted guitar, gospel-inspired harmonies, and more. It’s more proof that Courtney is a force to be reckoned with. Listen below.

Courtney and her band will also be touring in 2018, including a stop in Austin for SXSW, followed by a NYC show on March 27 at Mercury Lounge. Tickets for that show are on Citi presale now and the public on-sale starts Friday (1/12) at noon. All dates are listed below.
