Courtney Marie Andrews’ “May Your Kindness Remain” out March 23

Courtney Marie Andrews’ anticipated new full-length album, May Your Kindness Remain, will be released March 23 on Fat Possum Records/Mama Bird Recording Co. and is now available for pre-order.

In advance of the release, the album’s title track is premiering today as part of NPR Music’s “Songs We Love” series. Listen to and share the song HERE.

Andrews will tour throughout 2018 in support of the record, including newly confirmed headline shows at Nashville’s The High Watt, DC’s Black Cat, New York’s Mercury Lounge, Chicago’s Schubas and L.A.’s The Moroccan Lounge. See below for full details.

Produced by Mark Howard (Lucinda Williams, Bob Dylan, Emmylou Harris, Tom Waits), the 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).

Of the album and the inspiration behind its ten songs, Andrews comments, “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.”
