Plus UK and European tour dates for June + July.
GRAMMY-nominated and critically-acclaimed songwriter Courtney Marie Andrews is excited to today announce her new album Loose Future out 7th October via Fat Possum. To mark the announcement she is sharing the album’s first single “Satellite”. Something of a departure from the more traditional Americana sound of Andrews’ earlier releases, the track builds from a breezy guitar and vocal arrangement into a dreamy tapestry of synths, layered vocals and reverb-abetted slide guitar.
The song is accompanied by a video that finds Courtney chasing satellites in the woods of the Catskill Mountains on a bicycle hand-made for the intergalactic. Watch the video for “Satellite” HERE
“I’ve written a lot of love songs, but there’s always a tinge of heartbreak,” explains Andrews. “But “Satellite” is a love song without caveats. I wanted to look forward, and fall in love with the mystery of someone. Let love in, without questioning or instigating how it might hurt me. Sonically, I wanted to go to space. This kind of love isn’t earthbound.”
Andrews initially approached the album by writing a song every day. She felt “the sounds of summer” flowing through her writing, and gradually collected an album’s worth of material imbued with a sense of romance, possibility, and freedom. She enlisted Sam Evian (Big Thief, Cassandra Jenkins, Anna Burch) to co-produce the album with her and recorded the album at Evian’s Flying Cloud Recordings studio in the Catskill Mountains. Album credits include Chris Bear (Grizzly Bear) on drums and Josh Kaufman (Bonnie Light Horseman) on multiple instruments.
Loose Future ultimately represents a high watermark of her unbelievable journey thus far. Committing her life to music from a young age, playing in punk bands in high school before becoming a touring member of Jimmy Eat World at just 18 years old, Courtney went on to release a series of acclaimed albums. She garnered her first GRAMMY® Award nomination in the category of “Best Americana Album” for 2020’s Old Flowers. Along the way, she also unveiled her debut poetry collection, Old Monarch.
Andrews will also be playing several UK and European dates through June and July, see below.
