The official music video for City and Colour’s “Wasted Love” premiered yesterday; tour dates in early 2016 were also announced. The video was created by Director X of Creative Soul who has directed several noteworthy videos, most recently Drake’s “Hotline Bling”.

“City and Colour is the real deal. Real musicians, real music and real fans. I wanted to create a video that people would watch and feel, ‘I want to be there’. That’s what I feel when I watch it,” Director X says about working with Dallas Green.

“Wasted Love” is from the highly anticipated new City and Colour album, If I Should Go Before You, which recently debuted #1 in Canada, Green’s third consecutive chart-topper in our territory. In the U.S. the LP debuted at #16 on the Billboard 200 Chart, #3 on the Vinyl Albums Chart and #4 on the Independent Albums Chart and #5 in Australia. The album is available now via Dine Alone Records.

Green will embark on an extensive full band U.S tour this fall and winter, including newly announced U.S. shows in January.  Tickets for these 2016 performances go on sale this Friday, October 30, 2016.

Recorded at Nashville, Tennessee’s Blackbird Studios, If I Should Go Before You was produced by Green with additional production and engineering by Karl “Horse” Bareham. Unique to this project, the studio players on If I Should Go Before You are made up of Green’s trusted touring band: Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs, Dead Weather) on bass, Dante Schwebel (Spanish Gold, Dan Auerbach) on guitar, Doug MacGregor (Constantines) on drums and Matt Kelly on pedal steel guitar and keys.

“They inspired me to want to create new music, just to create it with them—I don’t think I wrote these songs for the band, per se, but I certainly wrote them because of the band,” Green says. “Anybody who has seen us play will understand that this is the best representation of what we do live that we have ever recorded. I was so excited about being able to make and record an album with these guys that it just flowed. I felt so confident about their abilities to make all of my ideas come true.”
