Acclaimed singer, songwriter and musician Courtney Marie Andrews’ new song, “How You Get Hurt,” is debuting today. Listen/share HERE.
The song is the latest unveiled from Andrews’ highly anticipated new album, Old Flowers, which will be released July 24 (pre-order). Created in the aftermath of a long-term relationship, Old Flowers features Andrews’ most vulnerable writing to date on ten new songs that chronicle her journey through heartbreak, loneliness and finding herself again after it all. Produced by Andrew Sarlo (Bon Iver, Big Thief), the album was recorded at Sound Space Studio and features only three musicians: Andrews (vocals, acoustic guitar, piano), Twain’s Matthew Davidson (bass, celeste, mellotron, pedal steel, piano, pump organ, wurlitzer, background vocals) and Big Thief’s James Krivchenia (drums, percussion). Already receiving critical acclaim, MOJO Magazine declares, “With the voice of Linda Ronstadt and the songwriting gifts of Joni Mitchell, there simply isn’t anything to dislike about Old Flowers.”
Ahead of the release, Andrews has shared three additional album tracks: “Burlap String,” “If I Told” and “It Must Be Someone Else’s Fault,” of which Rolling Stone praises, “Driven by acoustic guitar, the song brings to mind classic Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell, but Andrews’ bell-clear voice and fearless message of introspection are unmistakably her own,” while Brooklyn Vegan declares, “instantly appealing.”
