SOMETHING TO WRITE HOME ABOUT
Inside CITY AND COLOUR’S stunning new release, GUIDE ME BACK HOME…
CITY AND COLOUR’S NEW EFFORT IS A LIVE ALBUM
While 2018 has seen Dallas Green juggle both Alexisonfire and City And Colour on the live front, musically his first album of the year comes in the form of Guide Me Back Home – a live LP recorded during his gorgeous An Evening With City And Colour Canadian tour, which took place in the Ontario native’s country in 2017.
THE FIRST ‘COLLECTION’ OF SONGS IS OUT NOW
A physical edition of the 21-song album won’t be arriving until November 23 (keep an eye out – there’s some sweeeeet vinyl colour variants), but the first digital ‘collection’ is out already, featuring Sensible Heart, Casey’s Song and As Much As I Ever Could, recorded between April and May last year. Lovely.
IT BOASTS DALLAS’ DEVOTION TO HIS HOME COUNTRY
Guide Me Back Home, says the musician, is “more than just a live record to me. It is my love letter to Canada.” If it wasn’t already clear how much Dallas loves the place, given that his tour covered an impressive 28 shows across 25 cities coast-tocoast, now he’s paying tribute to the Great White North in recorded form.
DALLAS HAS LAUNCHED HIS OWN RECORD LABEL
The name’s Still Records, and the first release available is – you guessed it – Guide Me Back Home. As an imprint of Toronto, Nashville and La-based label Dine Alone, Dallas expands: “Dine Alone was started to put out my first album, and it’s been very successful and grown into something really special since then.”
AND THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS
“I see Still Records as a way to draw attention to projects that are important to me,” he continues. “Still Records is an extension of those ideals and a place where I’m able to curate a collection of things that I think deserve to be heard and enjoyed.”
HE’S DONATING MONEY FROM THIS ALBUM TO MUSICOUNTS
Having worked with them to donate $1 from every ticket from last year’s tour to Musicounts, Dallas will be doing the same again for the record’s release, giving $1 from the sale of each album towards the Canadian music education charity. Awesome work. Guide me back home IS DUE OUT digitally on October 5 via still records
