Acclaimed singer, songwriter, and performer Dallas Green aka City and Colour released his new single Astronaut today. Astronaut is the first original music from City and Colour in almost four years and is featured on his upcoming 6th studio album to be released this autumn on Dallas’ newly minted Still Records, an imprint of Dine Alone Records.
“I always think of the relationships in my life that have been fractured because I ended up doing what I do for a living,” says Dallas regarding the inspiration for the new song. “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.”
Dallas will play a string of US festivals this summer as well as a US October tour and a Canadian arena tour in November, and has partnered with PLUS1 for all North American tour dates. $1 from every ticket sold in Canada will be donated to both MusiCounts & Indspire. $1 from every ticket sold in U.S. will be donated to Crisis Text Line.
