The new “Album of the Week” honoree is, Old Flowers, from Nashville-based musician Courtney Marie Andrews, released on July 24th via Fat Possum Records. Each song on this record is a journey through every single one of your emotions my friends. The ability to find beauty in sadness and comfort in the acceptance of grief in order to move past it and become stronger.
Of the album, Andrews shares, “Old Flowers is about heartbreak. There are a million records and songs about that, but I did not lie when writing these songs. This album is about loving and caring for the person you know you can’t be with. It’s about being afraid to be vulnerable after you’ve been hurt. It’s about a woman who is alone, but okay with that, if it means truth. This was my truth this year—my nine-year relationship ended and I’m a woman alone in the world, but happy to know herself.”
