Courtney Marie Andrews’ last album, Honest Life, was a major oversight of mine in 2016. I’ve tried to make up for hit my spinning it incessantly. In a world gone mad, her gospel-tinged Americana can get you through a shitty day or two. Here’s some info on the new album.

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.”
