Kindness of Strangers is the second song unveiled from Courtney Marie Andrews’ much anticipated new full-length album, May Your Kindness Remain, which will be released March 23 on the ever reliable Loose Records in the UK and elsewhere via Fat Possum Records/Mama Bird Recording Co.

The new track takes a confident step away from the straight ahead, classic country/folk route to take in a little gospel, some church organ and even a little soul. It locks into a sweet groove whilst her incredible vocals remain centre stage and more than justifies the buzz that is building around her.

Breakthrough country star, Courtney Marie Andrews has recorded her own acoustic version of the holiday classic I’ll Be Home For Christmas, which will be featured on Amazon Music’s Acoustic Christmas playlist, along with new songs from Josh Ritter, Noah Gunderson, Kevin Morby and many more.

Listen below.

 

Started in conjunction with Secretly Group and 30 Songs, 30 Days, Our First 100 Days aims to raise funds for organizations supporting causes that are currently under threat by the Trump administration. We’ve already featured a few songs from the project, which has raised over $80,000 so far.

For their contribution, Courtney Marie Andrews and Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy have collaborated on a cover of I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free.

I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free is an amazing gospel tune that the incomparable Nina Simone covered and it became an important song for the civil rights movement in the 60s. A lot of these issues are still relevant today and I wanted to sing a song that had a palpable voice for those issues. I’ll never know what it was like to walk the rocky path that Nina did, but her power and unyielding strength was and is something to aspire to. “ – Courtney Marie Andrews.

We figured to make a song that would keep folks’ minds, tongues and fingers in motion. James Baldwin: ‘This is not the land of the free. It is only very unwillingly and sporadically the home of the brave.’” – Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy.

Sold in a subscription format for a minimum contribution of $30, fans receive one song per day across the first 100 days of Trump’s presidency. All profits from Our First 100 Days will benefit organisations that stand in opposition to a Trump presidency: All Above All, Cosecha, Hoosier Action, People’s Climate Movement, and Southerners On New Ground.
