NEW MUSIC: Courtney Marie Andrews - Heart and Mind
10 Sep 2018
Courtney Marie Andrews only released her last album a few months ago but she's already sharing new music
Courtney Marie Andrews played an incredible show at islington Assembly Hall earlier this year and we're thrilled to be welcoming her to Union Chapel in December where she'll be playing solo.
Today, she has shared a brand new track, Mind and Soul. Speaking about the track, she said:
Back in November, only two days or so after the election, this song hit me like a brick at a Love’s Truck Stop. I pulled over, and wrote it in 10 minutes. That’s how some songs are delivered, fully formed, and you must write them when they come. For the first time in my womanhood, I felt powerless, because the man who was supposed to rule our country made some very shocking and hurtful comments about women. It reminded me of all the times I, or someone close to me, had been harassed, sexually abused, cat-called, or body shamed. The song is intended to empower, and to conquer our demons. It is a statement, not a plead or a question. We ARE more than bodies. We are strong, intelligent, capable humans, with our own opinions and thoughts. It’s a song that I desperately needed as a reminder, and a song that I hope serves as a reminder to women who feel powerless.
