Citizen Cope

Today, beloved singer-songwriter Citizen Cope has shared “Good Will Overcome,” the final single from his upcoming record The Victory March, out July 28 via his own Rainwater Recordings. An understated yet soaring piano ballad, the track’s sparse instrumental provides a subtle backdrop for Cope’s rich voice. Cope’s lyrics follow the core themes of the record, hope and resilience; “I believe that good will overcome / And I find it rests in everyone / From the soles of my feet / To the air that we breathe.” A fitting message of peace and love within troubled times.


Today, veteran singer-songwriter Citizen Cope, a.k.a Clarence Greenwood, announced his upcoming LP entitled The Victory March due out this summer via his label Rainwater Recordings. Alongside this announcement, he has shared a new single, the languid and airy “Close To You.” The song is classic Cope, with the singer showcasing his rootsy soul-inflected vocals over echoing acoustics and soaring horns. The song builds with high arching harmonies as Cope sings of the sacrifices he has made to form a strong relationship.


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.


Today, singer-songwriter Citizen Cope has announced the All The Songs You Want To Hear tour, a series of headlining shows across the US starting in late April and running through May. On this tour, armed only with an acoustic guitar, Cope will play his greatest hits, bringing an immediate, stripped down feel to his sonically diverse catalog. “This will be an intimate solo acoustic experience that will ultimately lift all of our spirits,” Cope says.
