audio ‘stache: CITIZEN COPE’s One Lovely Day Has Arrived!

The fifth album by Citizen Cope album is streaming in full on AOL and MSN Music 

Citizen Cope Album CoverCitizen Cope, songwriter and producer Clarence Greenwood, has released the album physically and digitally through his own Rainwater Recordings, distributed by MRI and RED. One Lovely Daywhich features the hit title track, is streaming in its entirety on AOL Music as well as MSN Music.

Citizen Cope is helping promote One Lovely Day by performing and signing copies of the album retail stores across the country. He performed at Barnes & Noble in his hometown of Washington, DC, to celebrate the release! See below for more performances and signings near you!

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.

“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.

Over the past decade, Citizen Cope has been touring non-stop around the country, developing a unique brand of urban folk and building up a very dedicated fanbase. That dedicated following gave him the artistic freedom to cut loose from a major label back in 2009. He founded his own imprint, Rainwater Recordings, and released The Rainwater LP on his own terms. Fans with high expectations will find plenty to like on One Lovely Day—a collection of songs that reach for hopefulness even when the odds are down. Read more and stream the album in full at Paste.

Starting on Aug. 17, Cope sets out on a 47-date North American tour in support of the album.
