Courtney Marie Andrews Announces New Album May Your Kindness Remain

Americana singer-songwriter Courtney Marie Andrews has announced plans to release her next full length album May Your Kindness Remain on the 23rd March.

Courtney Marie Andrews has gained a number of fans in Australia following her recent tours here with Joe Pug, Sam Outlaw and Big Thief. May Your Kindness Remain was produced by Mark Howard (Lucinda Williams, Bob Dylan, Emmylou Harris, Tom Waits) and was recorded over eight days in LA.

“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,” Andrews explained. “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.”

The first single from the album is also the title track. Check out a stream of “May Your Kindness Remain” plus the full album track listing below:

1. May Your Kindness Remain
2. Lift The Lonely From My Heart
3. Two Cold Nights In Buffalo
4. Rough Around The Edges
5. Border
6. Took You Up
7. This House
8. Kindness Of Strangers
9. I’ve Hurt Worse
10. Long Road Back To You
