Courtney Marie Andrews releases new song “Near You” off exclusive 7″

Courtney Marie Andrews has released a new song, from the 7” that will accompany the re-issue of her breakout album Honest Life on September 15th, today! “Near You” speaks to learning to love, not just someone else but ultimately yourself. Andrews describes her experience saying “”Near You” is about loving someone without expectations or ego. I wrote this song when I was 20 years old. At that time, I was still learning about that kind of love, and I suspect writing this song helped me understand that. Real adult love, is loving yourself enough to love someone without expectations. Near You explores themes of a flawed person who loves another flawed person, but doesn’t beg them to change. Since this song was written so long ago, but was still an integral part of my live sets, I really wanted to give it the proper attention it deserves, and finally record and release it to the world.” Check out the exclusive interview on Nylon.
