Woman

Album: If I Should Go Before You (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • City and Colour kick off their If I Should Go Before You album with this epic 9-minute number. Frontman Dallas Green explained to HMV.com: "Initially I thought 'Woman' would go at the end because that's traditionally what you do – put the long song at the end. But it didn't make sense when I put that song last. So I tried it first and it made perfect sense to me."

    "It's a nice building intro rather than an epic closer. The rest of the album just seem to unfold the way it should. I am very, very, very conscious of making a record whether or not someone is going to listen back to it that way. I want records to flow and tell a story."
