Courtney Marie Andrews’ new song, “It Must Be Someone Else’s Fault,” is debuting today and you can check out the official music video below. Directed by V Haddad and with cinematography by Adam Gundersheimer of Slopehouse Productions, the video was choreographed by Marlee Cook-Parrot—more widely known as Marlee Grace—a writer and dancer who has garnered widespread attention over the past few years for her focus on improvisation and self-expression.
Of the video, Haddad reflects, “‘It Must Be Someone Else’s Fault’ inspired us to create a video exploring being and becoming a woman and the world that surrounds her in this journey. Through dream-logic, we set out to interweave our characters through choreographed echoes and mirror moments of dance to draw out an ode to matriarchy, empathy, and sisterhood.”
The song is the latest unveiled from Andrews’ highly anticipated new album, Old Flowers, which will be released July 24 on Fat Possum Records (pre-order). Originally set for release on June 5, the album was rescheduled to ensure that independent record stores across the country will have physical copies of the album available at the same time it’s released digitally.
Created in the aftermath of a long-term relationship, Old Flowers features Andrews’ most vulnerable writing to date on ten new songs that chronicle her journey through heartbreak, loneliness and finding herself again after it all. Produced by Andrew Sarlo (Bon Iver, Big Thief), the album was recorded at Sound Space Studio and features only three musicians: Andrews (vocals, acoustic guitar, piano), Twain’s Matthew Davidson (bass, celeste, mellotron, pedal steel, piano, pump organ, wurlitzer, background vocals) and Big Thief’s James Krivchenia (drums, percussion).
