Courtney Marie Andrews has revealed her new track Kindness of Strangers ahead of her UK tour which includes a Manchester gig at Gorilla.
The poignant track is the latest reveal from Courtney Marie Andrews’ upcoming album May Your Kindness Remain which is due for release on 23 March.
Discussing the track, Courtney commented, “Kindness of Strangers” was written directly after some legendary musicians took their own life. It sparked this long and deep thought about how we all feel disconnected with each other at some point in our lives. When you’re at your lowest of lows, even a friendly cashier can make your month. Human connection is essential for survival, and I’ve felt that void at so many different points in my life. This song portrays that void, and how even the smallest amount of kindness can save you.”
Produced by Mark Howard (Lucinda Williams, Bob Dylan, Emmylou Harris, Tom Waits), the new album was recorded over eight days at a rented house-turned-studio in L.A. In addition to Andrews on vocals and electric/acoustic guitar, the album 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).
