This is a big deal. New Courtney Marie Andrews album Honest Life is coming out August 19th on Mama Bird Recording Co. The UK/Europe release on Loose Music isn’t happening until January 2017, which is very unfortunate, but as they say, good things come to those who wait. Well in this case, absolutely wonderful things.
Her Leuven Letters was the EP of the year here in 2015. Technically it was a late 2014 release, but it was by far the EP I loved the most. So I had to bend the rules a bit, because I didn’t have the heart to leave it out. Honest Life is even better and an absolute beauty of an album. Definitely among the very best I’ve heard in months. The first outtake is a song called Irene and you’ll find it below. I’ll get back to Honest Life when it’s out and available. You can already pre-order at Mama Bird’s Bandcamp.
