“I always think of the relationships in my life that have been fractured because I ended up doing what I do for a living,” said, Green regarding the inspiration for the new song. “I’m always gone, wandering around and singing songs. However, it weighs on my family and friends. I’m asking for ‘one more year’. I left home at 21 to go play my guitar. It’s lonely, but it’s because I yearn to wander. I’m aware of how lucky I am.”

Along his North American tour, City and Colour is joined by Nigerian-born British singer-songwriter Jacob Banks, and B.C. based songwriter Ben Rogers.
