City and Colour reveal video for ‘Astronaut’

“I wrote a lot of dark songs and wrapped them in the most beautiful sounds we could find,” Green explains. “There are personal connotations, but they’re also relatable. I’m thankful for the opportunity to create.”

City and Colour, acclaimed singer, songwriter and performer Dallas Green, has revealed a captivating, ethereal new video for the song “Astronaut” from his upcoming studio album A PILL FOR LONELINESS due out on October 4 on Green’s newly minted Still Records, an imprint of Dine Alone Records

The video premiered exclusively with Apple Music on September 13 and is available to the general public as of today HERE.  Green once again teamed up with Michael Maxxis who directed City and Colour’s “Fragile Bird”, “Thirst”, “Lover Come Back” and “Strangers”. Says Maxxis, “I felt that Astronaut demanded epic visuals. The lyrics, vocals, and the instrumentation are all big, beautiful, and profound. Dallas shared his inspiration for the song with me, and then I went to work. This was one of those miracle productions, where somehow everything came together with just a couple days of prep. In the end this is a video I am very proud of. I think we captured the patient beauty of Astronaut in a simple, poetic way.

The highly anticipated follow-up to City and Colour’s #1 selling album If I Should Go Before You (2015), A Pill for Loneliness is 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). Pre-order and pre-save HERE.

Along with pre-saving the digital release on DSPs, fans can pre-order a 2xLP vinyl copy of the album through the City and Colour webstore where a variety of album-branded merchandise will be available.
