After four lengthy years, City and Colour, also known as Dallas Green, has made his return with the epic new track, “Astronaut.”
Superfans grab your tissues, because Green is back with his sweet, crooning vocals as he sings lines like, “All wayfaring hearts/ They take to the roads/ There’s poison, there’s silver/ That’s home,” atop a sprawling six-minute-long instrumental. The driven tune revolves around a slow-building, yet sweeping melody that’s sure to drill its way right into your bones.
“I always think of the relationships in my life that have been fractured because I ended up doing what I do for a living,” Green explains of the track in a statement. “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.”
