It’s hard not to turn green with envy after hearing the talents of folk artist City and Colour.
The Canadian musician, also known as Dallas Green, is due to drop his album, If I Should Go Before You, this Friday, October 9th. The much anticipated record was preceded by the release of the single “Woman” in July. He operates under Dine Alone Records and has already released four albums since 2004, each of which has gone platinum in Canada.
Green is known for his melancholy tunes that feature distinct acoustic melodies. The singer has a long history of writing such strains since the age of fourteen. He has amassed a steady following who are able to relate to his sad themes and groove to his indie jams. In 2006 he won the People’s Choice award for Favorite Artist for his single “Save Your Scissors.”
Needless to say, we’re holding our breath with excitement to finally hear the entirety of If I Should Go Before You. Though the album’s title may drop our mood, the sound is sure to perk our ears. Anyways, sometimes when you’re down it just doesn’t feel right to listen to “Happy.” Maybe next time, Pharrell.
