album cover for Courtney Marie Andrews record Old FlowersI just want to give Courtney Marie Andrews a big hug.

On her new album Old Flowers, this Arizona-raised and Nashville-based artist shares the most heartbreaking and soul revealing year of her life.

This is a break-up album, a collection of stories blossomed from the end of a nine-year relationship, revealing her heartache, loneliness and acceptance of self. Musically minimal – featuring only three musicians with the main focus on her amazing voice – you can’t help but be captivated by Andrews’ raw, natural vulnerability.

Majestic melancholy from the heart, alas a broken one.

Old Flowers by Courtney Marie Andrews is out now via Fat Possum/Inertia.
