City and Colour is set to release a special 2 song cover EP, Low Songs. This EP features the tracks “Murderer” and “Sunflower” by one of Dallas Green’s longtime, favorite bands, Low.
Green self-produced and engineered his cover of the tracks, originally by the Minnesota-based indie band Low (formed in 1993 with Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker). Green’s versions of these songs will be released through Still Records.
Both tracks are “available digitally, exclusively via City and Colour’s Bandcamp from Friday, June 19 at 12:00 am PT to June 25 at 11:59 pm PT. It will be priced at a $4.00 minimum with the option to pay more. All of City and Colour’s profits from Bandcamp sales, during this time, will be donated to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, aligning with Bandcamp’s initiative of donating 100% of their share of sales on Juneteenth (June 19).” These tracks will be available on all digital platforms on June 26.
Along with these digital tracks, a 7” pressing of the EP will be available for pre-order on June 19. “Sales from a limited edition clear variant will be donated to Black Youth! Pathway 2 Industry (BYP2I) A Toronto-based group that supports Black youth in the digital media, film, and television industry by providing mentoring and networking opportunities.”

Hey! My name is Melissa. I’m a Special Education Teacher from Newfoundland. Music has always played an important role in my life. Growing up I would spend countless hours listening to the Top 40 Countdown on the radio to record a song I liked to cassette. Then it was the hassle of carrying around a Discman and many CDs because you definitely wanted a variety. Gotta love the nineties! However, it wasn’t until volunteering for the ECMAs in 2004 that I realized that there was a whole other world of music that I was missing out on and I haven’t looked back.
