City and Colour, acclaimed singer, songwriter and performer Dallas Green, has launched a new label called Still Records, an imprint of Dine Alone Records. The first, official release is a very special live City and Colour album, Guide Me Back Home, to be released digitally on October 5 with physical product available November 23. The album was recorded during 2017’s sold-out “An Evening with City and Colour – Solo” Canadian tour where Green performed serene, stripped-down iterations of songs spanning his award-winning catalogue in an intimate theatre environment. The tour covered 25 cities from coast-to-coast. Green worked with Plus1 to collect $1 from each ticket sold during the 2017 tour to benefit MusiCounts. In the same spirit, $1 from the sale of each Guide Me Back Home album worldwide will be donated to MusiCounts.
|Guide Me Back Home is a beautifully recorded and meticulously curated 21-song album, produced by long-time friend Karl Bareham. Green says, “It’s more than just a live record to me. It is my love letter to Canada.” Along with a digital release, a special 3 x LP vinyl set will be available, housed in a triple gatefold jacket and featuring the photography of Vanessa Heins and a handwritten note from Dallas about this special tour.
In 2016, as the support cycle for 2015’s #1 album If I Should Go Before Youwas winding down, a mentally and physically exhausted Green was watching the “madness” surrounding the U.S. presidential election unfold from his home in Nashville. That’s when the highways of his homeland started calling out to him. “I felt like I needed to go see more of the country I’m from – to explore it more deeply and play for people who’ve travelled to see me over the years a little closer to where they might be from, and maybe find some new people that might be willing to listen, too.”
About starting Still Records, says Green, “I see Still Records as a way to draw attention to projects that are important to me. Dine Alone was started to put out my first album, and it’s been very successful and grown into something really special since then. Still Records is an extension on those ideals and a place where I’m able to curate a collection of things that I think deserve to be heard and enjoyed.”
