Ahead of her Manchester gig at Gorilla, USA singer-songwriter Courtney Marie Andrews has announced a new album and revealed the title track.
The new full length album May Your Kindness Remain is set for release on 23 March. The also has been produced by Mark Howard and was recorded over eight days. Joining Courtney Marie Andrew on the album are 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).
Speaking about the album and the inspiration behind the ten songs, Courtney Marie Andrews commented, “The people that I’ve met on the road these past few years got me thinking about my childhood, and the people around me that I’ve known, and the stories that come from my family. It became clear how many people are struggling through the same issues. People are constantly chasing that bigger life. 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.”
