Former Alexisonfire guitarist Dallas Green started releasing music as City and Colour approximately eight years ago, and the acoustic folk project was a stark contrast to Alexisonfire's intense, post-hardcore onslaught. Now he is about to release City and Colour's fourth album, The Hurry and the Harm, on which Green's folk sound expands even more. Here you can get a first listen to the breezy title track, on which laid-back drums prompt slide-guitar swells and Green's easy falsetto.

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
