Today, singer-songwriter Citizen Cope has shared “Ms. Prado (Rest My Eyes On You),” his first single since 2021’s The Pull of Niagara Falls, marking the first taste of more new music on the way later this year. A sparse, yet soulfully textured track displaying Cope’s signature croon, the song sees the narrator yearning for his partner amongst building guitars and displaced, echoing drum hits. It comes as Cope’s classic 2004 record The Clarence Greenwood Recordings approaches platinum status despite never formally charting, a testament to its enduring popularity. Recently, Cope announced his All The Songs You Want To Hear acoustic tour, which will see him performing stripped down renditions of classics, fan favorites, and unreleased new material across the US/ Tickets are on sale now here.
