The track received its first play last night on Radio 1 from Huw Stephens, sitting in for Annie Mac, and the lyric video received a world premiere on leading US website, the Daily Beast.
City and Colour takes a dash of blues-rock inspiration for his brand new single ‘Wasted Love’. Introducing upbeat, edgy guitars, married with soulful piano, this track serves up the perfect summer anthem.
City and Colour will be touring in support of his brand new album with a highly-anticipated return to the UK featuring eight dates, including two night’s at London’s Troxy. City and Colour’s last taste of the UK came back in 2014, with ten stellar dates, including a sold-out show at London’s Hammersmith Apollo. The band will be returning to the UK following an 18-date tour of the U.S. at the end of this year.
