TGIF: City and Colour's "Lover Come Back"

City and Colour, aka Dallas Green, has released the eighth single (!) ahead of his fifth album, and thankfully, it's just what I needed to revive my love for the Canadian singer-songwriter. 

"Lover Come Back" is a sunnier, soul-tinged ode that strays from the gloomy acoustic mold Green sometimes slips into. His voice, desperate and powerful as he calls back his sweetheart, is pretty much impeccable - reminding me his pipes have always been the primary reason I love him. The Ryan Adams-esque composition of this single is definitely another surefire catch.

Unadorned and perfectly rootsy, "Lover Come Back" will sound even better on the highway this weekend. Roll the windows down for this one, and look out for If I Should Go Before You on October 9 via Dine Alone Records.
