City and Colour Drops New Music Video for “Meant To Be”
Canadian singer-songwriter Dallas Green, aka City and Colour has dropped a new music video for “Meant To Be” directed by Michael Maxxis.
The song was released last month and is his first music since the 2019 album “A Pill for Loneliness”.
The track was written and produced by Dallas Green with production by Matt Kelly.
The video was shot in an abandoned airport terminal in Detroit.
“Dallas sent me the album, and when I started listening, I felt like he was there in the room with me,” director Michael Maxxis explained of the video. “He performs with a vulnerability that I haven't heard from him before, and the effect was a profound emotional experience, similar to something you'd feel if someone was really opening up to you or experiencing intense emotions in person. Dallas's walls are down on this album, and I wanted to capture that on film. For the 'Meant to Be' video I wanted to capture him unguarded and unvarnished, and I felt the best way to do that was with a beautifully shot and crafted performance video.”
- “Michael always has insightful things to say when he describes what he 'sees' when he listens to my music,” Dallas Green said. “I knew I had made an emotional record, but the way he described his initial, visceral reaction to hearing it was so moving... to know something so emotionally connected to me elicited that kind of emotional response in someone. It was immediately apparent he got what I was going for.”
He continued, “I've worked with Michael since he directed Alexisonfire's 'The Northern' in 2009. He makes things easy, he knows how I like to work, and I trust his process. He put together the most wonderful crew on a tight deadline who came together to accomplish a lot of things last minute to make it work.”
