Dallas Green, acclaimed singer, songwriter and performer for City and Colour, just debuted his new song, Astronaut, on Monday.
It is the first original music from City and Colour in almost four year’s and is featured on his upcoming sixth studio album to be released this fall on Green’s newly minted Still Records.
In describing the genesis of the song, Green said, “I always think of the relationships in my life that have been fractured because I ended up doing what I do for a living. 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.”
In addition to the release, a North American tour was announced. The Canadian leg of the arena tour kicks off Nov. 8 in Victoria and ends at the opposite end of the country in Halifax on Nov. 29.
During the 12-city tour, City and Colour drops by Edmonton’s Rogers Place on Wednesday, Nov. 13. Opening for City and Colour are special guests Jacob Banks and Ben Rodgers.
Tickets go on sale Friday, June 7 at 10 a.m. local time through livenation.com.
