Dallas Green will be releasing his 3rd solo album as a singer-songwriter under the moniker
City and Colour on Vagrant Records. The album titled Little Hell is scheduled for release on
June 7th, 2011 and is the highly-anticipated follow-up to the 2008’s Bring Me Your Love, which
was certified platinum in Green’s native Canada. Alternately sparse and inviting, intense and
delicate, Little Hell shows music fans another side of Green’s incredible songwriting skills, and
features some of his finest songs to date.
Little Hell was recorded earlier this winter at Catherine North Studios in Hamilton, ON with
producer/engineer/mixer Alex Newport (At The Drive-In, Mars Volta, Death Cab For Cutie).
Fans got a sneak preview of a brand new track from the upcoming album when an alternate
version of the song titled 'Northern Wind' recently made its debut on a special Valentine's Day
episode of the hit series One Tree Hill. Green performed on the episode as part of the show's
Little Hell – named after the album’s title track, a song that explores the little heavens and little
hells that comprise a relationship – is the first of Green’s albums to be recorded and mixed
to tape. This sonic move ultimately resulted in the album’s warm immediacy, allowing the
songs to take on a spaciousness previously unheard in City and Colour albums. The record
allows Green to highlight all of the facets of his songwriting, from Blues-tinged rockers to
pedal steel-soaked acoustic gems.
