GRAMMY-nominated and critically-acclaimed songwriter Courtney Marie Andrews is excited to today announce her new album Loose Future out 7th October on Fat Possum.
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.
It was co-produced by Sam Evian with Andrews and recorded at Evian’s Flying Cloud Recordings studio in the Catskill Mountains.
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' below.
“I’ve written a lot of love songs, but there’s always a tinge of heartbreak,” explains Andrews about the song. “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.”
Whereas the Grammy nominated Old Flowers was a beautiful and emotional break-up record, her return with Loose Future is a bright, dynamic, falling-in-love record.
Courtney's got a new story to tell, backed by a strong new musical direction, and a show-stopping collection of songs.
