CITY AND COLOUR shares deeply personal 7th album “The Love Still Held Me Near”

1 min read

City and Colour – acclaimed singer, songwriter and performer Dallas Green – has released his highly-anticipated 7th studio album The Love Still Held Me Near today via Still Records, an imprint of Dine Alone Records. A video for title track “The Love Still Held Me Near” premieres at 12:00pm ET today.

The album The Love Still Held Me Near is a deeply personal and cathartic offering, and the most sonically expansive in the celebrated City and Colour canon.

Directed by Michael Maxxis, the latest video is the fourth instalment of a moody, and formidable cinematic series of videos that accompany every song on the new LP. Says Maxxis, “​​Dallas’ walls are down on this album, and I wanted to capture that on film.” The series was shot in Detroit, Michigan over 3 days on 16mm film.
