City and Colour Announce New Album; Drop Huge Single
Dallas Green is a man who knows how to please. Earlier this year, Alexisonfire announced a series of much-wanted reunion shows, playing festivals like Reading and Leeds in the UK and Riot Fest in Canada (it doesn’t look like they’ll be making it Down Under, but hey, we can dream can’t we?). For all you City and Colour fans, Green has just dropped a huge nine-minute long single, “Woman”, alongside the announcement of his fifth studio album, If I Should Go Before You.
“Over the last two years I’ve had the great pleasure of touring with an unbelievable group of musicians, who I can now safely call some of my best friends,” Green says. “If I Should Go Before You is the record I made with those friends. It’s not “exclusive” to anyone – Not to Tidal or Apple Music or Spotify or Rdio or anywhere in particular – but you can find it in all those places. It’s a collection of 11 songs – the thoughts I had on my mind: a last ditch effort to find something better and leave well enough alone. You can steal it, stream it or even buy it! Just try to enjoy it. I know I do.”
If I Should Go Before You will be available for pre-order on the July 24th, with exclusive bundles available only through City and Colour’s website. Green hasn’t specified what’s in those bundles yet, so keep your eyes and ears opened. All pre-orders come with an instant download for “Woman”.
If I Should Go Before You is out October 9 through Dine Alone/Cooking Vinyl.
You can pre-order it via www.cityandcolour.com from July 24.
