Unique to this project, the studio players on the album 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.

Of the album and recording process, Dallas comments,

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. 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.

If I Should Go Before You‘ is Green’s fifth release as City and Colour and follows 2013’s ‘The Hurry and The Harm‘, which received widespread critical and commercial praise. The album debuted at #1 on Canada’s Top 200 Chart, #16 in the U.S., #4 in Australia, #32 in the U.K., and #83 in Germany—all career highs.

Most recently, in 2014, Green collaborated with international superstar Alecia Moore (aka P!nk) on a new project, entitled you+me. The duo’s acclaimed debut, ‘rose ave.’, debuted at #4 on the U.S. Top 200 Chart, #1 in Canada, #2 in Australia and #6 in Germany.
