If I Should Go Before You, the new album from world-renowned singer, songwriter and performer City and Colour (aka Dallas Green), will be released on October 9 on Dine Alone Records. You can now check out the lyric video for track Woman below.
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. 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.”
The new album will be available for pre-order from this Friday, July 24th. Those who pre-order via iTunes will receive an immediate download of Woman. A fan pre-order will also be available the same day as of 2:00PM at www.cityandcolour.com featuring limited edition colored vinyl along with other unique items.
