City and Colour – acclaimed singer, songwriter and performer Dallas Green – has announced that his new album, The Love Still Held Me Near, will be released on March 31 via Still Records, an imprint of Dine Alone Records.
The record is available to pre-order tomorrow at 10am ET HERE.
New track “Underground” offers a strong message that life is a gift, embrace every moment while you can. Alongside the single, a new video for “Underground” directed by Michael Maxxis premieres at 5:00pm ET and is the second instalment of a moody, and formidable cinematic series of videos directed by Maxxis set to accompany every song on the new LP. Says Maxxis, “Dallas’ walls are down on this album, and I wanted to capture that on film.”
“The Love Still Held Me Near was born out of unimaginable loss and the subsequent journey through the grief and heartache that followed,” explains Green. “It’s about digging deep down into yourself and attempting to unearth hope and light in the things that can comfort you through those times. For me that has always been writing and recording music, so that’s exactly what I did.”
Produced by Green and longtime band member and collaborator Matt Kelly, the 12 songs that comprise The Love Still Held Me Near follow the most difficult period in Green’s life, including the tragic loss of his best friend in 2019.
Pre-orders for physical variants are available HERE. In addition to the standard black, there are 7 exclusive variants available alongside curated The Love Still Held Me Near merchandise. Each vinyl variant is a 2×12” widespine jacket with spot gold foil gloss and two die cut printed inserts. See below for details on all physical variants.
