Get excited: Dallas Green, who you may know better as City and Colour, just released his first song under the band’s name in almost four years!
“Astronaut” is our first taste of new music from the band since 2015, when they released their album If I Should Go Before You.
As if it wasn’t exciting enough the group made a new song, it also accompanied the announcement that “Astronaut” is taken off the group’s still unnamed sixth studio album. Oh, and did we mention it’s going to be released via Green’s new record label, Still Records, which is an imprint of Dine Alone Records?
Of the inspiration behind the new track, Green shared:
“ I always think of the relationships in my life that have been fractured because I ended up doing what I do for a living.”
He continued on by saying:
“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 .”
