“The result is more intense, more driving, more visceral, than previous City and Colour records.” —The Owl Mag

“…his strongest album with a full band to date.” —MXDWN

“As singer-songwriters go, City And Colour has it all.” —Sunday Express★★★★

“Moody, magnificent and damn close to a masterpiece, this might be the finest album of Green’s career.” —Toronto Sun

City and Colour performed “Lover Come Back” and “Wasted Love” last night on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!

The performances celebrate City and Colour’s acclaimed new album, If I Should Go Before You, which recently debuted at #16 on the Billboard 200 Chart, #3 on the Vinyl Albums Chart and #4 on the Independent Albums Chart. Available now on Dine Alone Records (iTunes, Amazon, cityandcolour.com), the album also debuted at #1 in Canada (the band’s third consecutive chart-topper) and #5 in Australia. Additionally, the single “Lover Come Back” is currently #10 on the BDS AAA Radio chart and rising. Watch the official music video for the song here.

After performing countless shows worldwide, including recent sold-out dates at L.A.’s Palladium, NYC’s Terminal 5 and Nashville’s War Memorial Auditorium, City and Colour (aka world-renowned singer, songwriter and performer Dallas Green), will continue to tour throughout the U.S. this month followed by extensive European, Australian and Canadian tours. See below for complete details.


In addition to widespread commercial success, If I Should Go Before You continues to receive notable critical acclaim. The A.V. Club calls the album “alluring” and “breathtaking,” while AllMusic praises, “…a culmination of the sturdy pop sound he’s built up over the years that weaves through territories of dreamy indie folk, pastoral Americana, and soulful alt-rock.” Additionally, Paste Magazine describes “Lover Come Back” as “…a gorgeous, R&B-tinged torch song split evenly between joyous, earnest affection and yearning, lovesick sadness,” and Baeble asserts, “…reminded me how beautiful his voice can be.” Moreover, Nerdist recently premiered an “…achingly beautiful…” new acoustic video of the song, which can now be viewed/shared here: http://bit.ly/1Fq0ozL.

Recorded at Nashville, Tennessee’s Blackbird Studios, If I Should Go Before You was produced by Green with additional production and engineering by Karl “Horse” Bareham. Unique to this project, the studio players on If I Should Go Before You are made up of Green’s trusted touring band: Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs, Dead Weather) on bass, Dante Schwebel (Spanish Gold, Dan Auerbach) on guitar, Doug MacGregor (Constantines) on drums and Matt Kelly on pedal steel guitar and keys.

Of the album and recording process, Dallas comments, “They inspired me to want to create new music, just to create it with them—I don’t think I wrote these songs for the band, per se, but I certainly wrote them because of the band.” He goes on to add, “Anybody who has seen us play will understand that this is the best representation of what we do live that we have ever recorded. I was so excited about being able to make and record an album with these guys that it just flowed. I felt so confident about their abilities to make all of my ideas come true.”

If I Should Go Before You is Green’s fifth release as City and Colour and follows 2013’s The Hurry and The Harm. Most recently, in 2014, Green collaborated with international superstar Alecia Moore (aka P!nk) on a new project, entitled You+Me. The duo’s acclaimed debut, rose ave., debuted at #4 on the U.S. Top 200 Chart, #1 in Canada, #2 in Australia and #6 in Germany. Of the music, The Huffington Post praised, “While such prominent voices rarely mix too seamlessly, Green and Moore were destined to harmonize together,” while Entertainment Weekly declared, “The harmonies on the album are absolutely beautiful.”
