“Green has crafted the most expansive, sprawling album of his career.” – Exclaim!
“The breathy, somewhat lo-fi approach of the past is replaced with a pristine production that puts the voice front and centre…the performances are razor clear and everything is anthemic.” – Vancouver Sun
(October 4, 2019 – Toronto, ON) City and Colour, acclaimed singer, songwriter and performer Dallas Green, releases A PILL FOR LONELINESS today on Green’s new label Still Records, an imprint of Dine Alone Records. The album is available to purchase and stream HERE.
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).
Green recently revealed a captivating, ethereal video for the song “Astronaut” where he teamed up once again with Michael Maxxis who directed City and Colour’s “Fragile Bird”, “Thirst”, “Lover Come Back” and “Strangers”. Watch “Astronaut” HERE.
A 2xLP vinyl copy of the album is available to fans via the City and Colour webstore where a variety of album-branded merchandise is also available. As with previous releases, City and Colour will offer an artist exclusive vinyl with its own unique packaging and colour variant as follows:
- 2LP set, housed in a die-cut mirror board gatefold jacket, with printed euro-style inner sleeves
- A/B side pressed on Sea Blue vinyl with Magenta vinyl centre and Sky Blue and Tangerine Splatter
- C/D side pressed on Grape vinyl with a Canary Yellow vinyl centre and Magenta and Tangerine Splatter
Additional limited colour vinyl options are available from Dine Alone Records and indie retailers globally including a standard edition black. Fans who order the vinyl HERE will also receive a digital download as of today, October 4.
Over the course of five studio albums, Green has compiled a canon ripe with songs amassing a legion of fans worldwide. With this 6th full-length album, Green siphons serenity from stress through a kaleidoscope of lush guitars, ethereal orchestration, and heavenly delivery over eleven tracks that illuminate an entrancing emotional expanse, balancing two extremes with eloquence and energy.
“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.”
A Canadian arena tour kicks off in Victoria, BC on November 8 and ends in Halifax on November 29. Each ticket purchased online for the Canadian tour includes the choice of a digital or physical CD copy of the forthcoming full-length album. Purchasers will receive instructions via email upon ticket purchase, detailing how to redeem the album. Joining City and Colour as support is Nigerian-born British singer-songwriter Jacob Banks, and B.C. based songwriter Ben Rogers, the first signing to Green’s Still Records.
A U.S. run kicks off October 9 and features 2 back-to-back nights in Nashville, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston and New York. One night in each city will take place in a seated theatre, featuring Green performing an intimate solo show – something fans have been requesting for years. The additional night in each city will take place in general admission rock venues and feature Green performing with his full touring band. Supporting City and Colour in the U.S. will be Ben Rogers (solo shows) and alternative singer-songwriter Ruby Waters (full band shows). In keeping with Green’s penchant for showcasing emerging artists that he believes strongly in, he personally chose both Rogers and Waters as openers.
City and Colour 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.
