Better late than never. This best describes our discovery of Courtney Marie Andrews’ inspired songs last year, nearly ten years since she released her debut album Urban Myths (2008). Originally released in 2016—and re-released last year—to widespread critical acclaim, Andrews’ revelatory album Honest Life signaled the formal arrival of a singer-songwriter to be reckoned with.
Hence our delight upon learning today that Andrews has wasted precious little time in recording her follow-up effort, May Your Kindness Remain. Due to arrive in stores March 23rd courtesy of Fat Possum Records / Mama Bird Recording Co. (NA) and Loose Music (EU), the 10-track affair is preceded by its uplifting lead single and title track, which finds Andrews’ soaring vocals in signature form alongside her earnest and evocative lyrics penned for a friend in need.
