Citizen Cope chats w/ Billboard + reveals new song "The River"

“PERSONAL AND POIGNANT” - BILLBOARD

Today, Citizen Cope reveals his new song "The River," a track that Billboard calls "personal and poignant." "The River" comes from Citizen Cope's new album 'Heroin & Helicopters' (3/1, Rainwater Recordings/Thirty Tigers), his first in over 7 years. Listen to "The River" and read an in-depth interview with Citizen Cope via Billboard: https://www.billboard.com/articles/news/8493913/citizen-cope-the-river-premiere

“The River” is both an ode to hip-hop and the protest songs of Neil Young. With heavy drums and acoustic guitar at the forefront, the lyrics take on the devalued life of humankind and the tyrannical devices used by the ruling few to divide people in all class systems through racial, cultural, economical, and religious lines.

The new track is the second taste from Cope’s upcoming ‘Heroin And Helicopters’ which sees him tackle themes of religion, political manipulation, hollowness in the entertainment world, and spiritual enlightenment, as he contends with his own role in those societal institutions. Hear Clarence talk more about the inspiration behind the album title in a recent appearance on the TuneIn podcast here: https://bit.ly/2SNyJ4a

Early praise for the new music has already come from NPR Music’s World Cafe, who said lead single “Justice” “swaggers with a head-nodding groove and contains a yearning and soulful message of optimism and positivity.” Listen to “Justice” here: https://youtu.be/Y28DscGeu5g

Citizen Cope will tour extensively in support of the new record, making stops at The Beacon Theatre in New York City, The Novo in Los Angeles, and more. Full tour routing below.
