Hear Courtney Marie Andrews' New Song 'Irene'
Friday, 22nd July 2016
Following on from the recent announcement that we've signed Courtney Marie Andrews to Loose, you can now hear Irene - the first song to be taken from Courtney's forthcoming new album, Honest Life.On sharing the song, The Bluegrass Situation defends past comparisons between Courtney and Joni Mitchell :-
"The comparison is not an unjust leap -- she evokes the legend without being completely derivative, and with a little more swing in her step. Irene, one of the album's punchiest standout tracks, conjures Mitchell not just in particular voice breaks or sonic choices, but in how Andrews choses subject matter: About a good woman who is a magnet for bad decisions, it's an observational tale in an all-about-my-selfie generation. Full of swinging riffs and piano vamps that fling the lyrics out with clever force, it shows that folk music can be equally savory and sweet."Pre-order Honest Life on iTunes (HERE) or Amazon Digital (HERE) and get an instant download of Irene. Pre-order the CD or 180g turquoise vinyl via the Loose Shop (HERE) and a physical copy will be delivered to you ahead of the 20th January release date.https://youtu.be/liJIFP1jQcs?list=PL2VivD1Kh51t7wMyAx0YeeBNmTqx4JOwi
