City and Colour, acclaimed singer, songwriter, and performer Dallas Green has revealed a captivating, ethereal new video for the song “Astronaut” from his upcoming studio album A PILL FOR LONELINESS due out on October 4 on Green’s newly minted Still Records, an imprint of Dine Alone Records.
Green once again teamed up with Michael Maxxis who directed City and Colour’s “Fragile Bird”, “Thirst”, “Lover Come Back” and “Strangers”. Says Maxxis, “I felt that ‘Astronaut” demanded epic visuals. The lyrics, vocals, and the instrumentation are all big, beautiful, and profound. Dallas shared his inspiration for the song with me, and then I went to work. This was one of those miracle productions, where somehow everything came together with just a couple days of prep. In the end, this is a video I am very proud of. I think we captured the patient beauty of ‘Astronaut’ in a simple, poetic way.”
