City and Colour, acclaimed singer, songwriter and performer Dallas Green, debuts the first official single, ‘Strangers’, from his upcoming, 6th studio album, due this Autumn on his newly minted Still Records, an imprint of Dine Alone Records.
“‘Strangers’ is about how you will never truly know another human being,” says Green. “You’ll never really understand what it’s like to be inside someone else’s brain or heart. So, we need to appreciate the differences. If we do, maybe we can live better with one another.” The single hinges on a buoyant riff and hummable groove and charges towards a ghostly refrain awash in reverb as Green pleads, “Don’t wake me when this is over, just let me drift amidst my dreams.”
“Strangers” is the second piece of music from City and Colour’s much-anticipated new record. The hauntingly beautiful, “Astronaut” debuted earlier this month and can be streamed HERE. Both tracks are 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).
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.
