Citizen Cope (songwriter and producer Clarence Greenwood) is proud to announce the release of his fifth album, One Lovely Day (July 17, Rainwater Recordings / MRI / RED).  Recorded in Brooklyn and written / produced by Clarence, the sounds on One Lovely Day are Southern rural, big sky lonely, concrete urban, and painfully romantic. For over a decade, Citizen Cope has been building a profoundly dedicated following, tirelessly bringing his urban folk-with a band or simply his guitar- to far corners of the US and beyond. This summer and fall, Cope continues with 47-date US headlining tour, including a date at the Beacon Theater in New York City (11/3).

“Rawness improbably balanced by a mixture of danger and delicacy is what gives Citizen Cope his edge,” writes Rolling Stone.  “As a singer, songwriter and producer, he stands alone-an artist immune to corruption.” A child of the seventies, Citizen Cope is the radically mashed-up product of Greenville, Mississippi; Memphis, Tennessee; Vernon, Texas; Austin, Texas; Washington, DC; and Brooklyn, New York. These locations are felt everywhere in his stories.  Folk tales-whether through William Faulkner or Big Bill Broonzy-shaped his sensitivity.  In ’80s Austin, he took sound classes and found himself fooling with a primitive four-track setup. Turntables intrigued him, and he heard hip hop as an inspired invention. For years, he got lost in his self-designed lab, cooking up beats and motifs that only later would be shaped into songs, some recorded by Carlos Santana, Dido and Richie Havens.

One Lovely Day will be released July 17 on Rainwater Recordings.
