Courtney Marie Andrews has announced two short tours which start with a run of in-store appearances in Leeds in October, followed by a series of dates in March. The Grammy-nominated and critically-acclaimed songwriter has shared a new single from her forthcoming album Loose Future, which is out on 7th October via Fat Possum. Entitled ‘These Are the Good Old Days‘, The single is the third to be released which was announced in June with the song ‘Satellite‘ and the album’s title track. Her latest single arrives on the heels of a US tour supporting Wilco, which came about after Jeff Tweedy caught Andrews’ set at the Black Deer Festival in the UK and invited her on stage to perform Wilco’s ‘California Stars’.

“‘These are the good old days’ is a saying my uncle always says to try and remind us of the beauty of the now,” she explains. “I tend to always live in a constant state of hindsight being 20/20, and I wanted to write this as a sort of mantra to honor my family’s sentiment. I also genuinely wanted to write a feel-good song after such a dark few years. Even in the saddest of times, there are little moments you’ll always look back on with a fondness that don’t seem so sad after all— they seem perfectly placed.”
