This week, Rolling Stone shared the latest track from singer-songwriter Courtney Marie Andrews.
“This is one of the few songs I’ve ever written with such a heavy sense of sarcasm,” Andrews tells Rolling Stone. “I have a family member who loves to hurt in a relationship, and they are addicted to toxic and abusive partners. The narrator in ‘I’ve Hurt Worse’ is justifying their partner’s behaviors by comparing them to an even worse relationship they’ve been in before. It’s a sarcastic song about recognizing abuse, and allowing your own mental instability to get the best of you.”
May Your Kindness Remain is in stores March 23.
