05 Mar Hear Courtney Marie Andrews’ New Song + New Album & Tour Details Announced
Courtney Marie Andrews is back with new song If I Told and details of her new album, Old Flowers. Produced by Andrew Sarlo (Bon Iver, Big Thief), the album was recorded at LA’s Sound Space Studio and features only three musicians: Courtney, Matthew Davidson of Twain and Big Thief’s James Krivchenia.
Courtney tells us, “Old Flowers is about heartbreak. There are a million records and songs about that, but I did not lie when writing these songs. This album is about loving and caring for the person you know you can’t be with. It’s about being afraid to be vulnerable after you’ve been hurt. It’s about a woman who is alone, but okay with that, if it means truth. This was my truth this year—my nine-year relationship ended and I’m a woman alone in the world, but happy to know herself.”
Producer, Andrew Sarlo adds, “Before we got to the studio, we agreed to prioritise making this record as cathartic and minimal as possible—focusing on Courtney’s voice and her intention behind the songs. Because of this, the record is all about performance. I believe a great recording is the chemistry between everything during basics and the ability to feel something happening instead of obsessing over the perfect take. Courtney embraced this approach and we ended up with a raw, natural and human record.”
