City and Colour has a new album coming out on June 7th and today they released the whole album on youtube – as music over a video full screen. While I love the idea of getting the jump on an album I’ve been anticipating since the last time I saw them live, I’m not really sure this use of youtube is my favorite. It seems a bit disjointed to me – the songs don’t play one after another, not sure if the list order is album order, computer speakers – although the way I listen to most music nowadays – is never my first choice for really soaking in a new album. But enough I’ve my whining. The good news is I love it. I love music that can tell stories. Music is such a visual thing for me, well, good music. I have this natural inclination to listen to a song and just build a music video in my head. Anyhow, if you haven’t check out City and Colour, I highly recommend it. And here is the preview of the album’s title track. Can’t wait to but the cd in my car and go for one of those late night summer drives.
