City and Colour fans can check out a brand new lyric video for the band’s latest single “Lover Come Back.” The track is from the 3-time Juno winner’s upcoming studio album If I Should Go Before You, which will hit shelves on Oct. 9 via Universal.
City and Colour (a.k.a. for Dallas Green’s solo project) posted the lyric video on Aug. 21 at their official YouTube channel and premiered the song Thursday at “Paste” magazine. “Lover Come Back” is the third song to be unveiled, following the previous release of “Wasted Love” earlier this month and “Woman” last month.
The 3:55 minute clip reveals C&C showing their R&B influences in this soulful ode to lost love. The lyrics are enticingly penned on the back of naked woman during the song’s chorus, as Green sings, “I sing lover come back/Lover come back to me/Won’t you ever come back/Ever come back to me.”
If I Should Go Before You is the ex-AlexIsOnFire member’s 5th studio album and follow up to 2013’s The Hurry and the Harm. Between albums, Green also collaborated with Pink under the banner You + Me for the folk influenced studio album Rose Ave, released last fall.
Featuring 11 new songs, the album will be available in digital, CD and vinyl formats in various bundles. Fans who pre-order the album will receive an instant grat track of the song “Woman.”
City and Colour has announced an upcoming tour of the U.S. in support of the new album, which will run through November and December, kicking off Nov. 5 at The Fillmore in Detroit and wind up Dec.12 in Richmond, Virginia, at The National. Tickets for select events are available at AXS.
