CITY AND COLOUR DEBUTS NEW SONG ‘ASTRONAUT’
FROM FORTHCOMING LP OUT THIS AUTUMN VIA STILL RECORDS
City and Colour, acclaimed singer, songwriter and performer Dallas Green, debuts a new song, “Astronaut”. Produced by three-time Grammy-winning Jacquire King (Kings Of Leon, Tom Waits, Modest Mouse, Norah Jones) and mastered by Emily Lazar (Beck, Coldplay, Dolly Parton, The Chainsmokers), the first female mastering engineer to win a Grammy for best engineered album (2019). “Astronaut” is the first original music from City and Colour in almost four years and is featured on his upcoming 6th studio album to be released this autumn on Dallas’ newly minted Still Records, an imprint of Dine Alone Records.
“I always think of the relationships in my life that have been fractured because I ended up doing what I do for a living,” says Dallas regarding the inspiration for the new song. “I’m always gone, wandering around and singing songs. However, it weighs on my family and friends. I’m asking for ‘one more year’. I left home at 21 to go play my guitar. It’s lonely, but it’s because I yearn to wander. I’m aware of how lucky I am.”
City and Colour is undeniably one of the biggest groundswell stories to emerge from Canada. Over the course of five studio albums, Dallas has compiled a canon ripe with songs born of adoration and devotion, amassing a legion of fans worldwide. He has also been awarded four Platinum-certified studio albums as a member of Alexisonfire.
City and Colour’s last studio album If I Should Go Before You was his third consecutive chart-topper in Canada. The LP also made serious waves internationally debuting at #16 on the U.S. Billboard 200 Chart and #5 in Australia where Green’s LP Little Hell was certified GOLD. In 2014, Green collaborated with international superstar Alecia Moore (aka P!nk) on a new project titled You+Me. The duo’s acclaimed Platinum-certified first record, rose ave., debuted at #4 on the U.S. Top 200 Chart, #1 in Canada, #2 in Australia culminating in memorable performances on The Ellen Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live. In addition to widespread commercial success, If I Should Go Before You received critical acclaim from notable international media.
Dallas will play a string of US festivals this summer as well as a US October tour and a Canadian arena tour in November, and has partnered with PLUS1 for all North American tour dates. $1 from every ticket sold in Canada will be donated to both MusiCounts & Indspire. $1 from every ticket sold in U.S. will be donated to Crisis Text Line.
