Songfacts®:

  • You+Me is a country and folk-flavored duo. The act comprises Alecia Moore, better known as Pink and Dallas Green, who after fronting the Canadian hardcore band Alexisonfire, has released a series solo albums under the City and Colour moniker. The pair met through Pink's husband Carey Hart and instantly felt a connection. "He has the most angelic voice I've ever heard in my life," Pink said of Green. "And I thought, 'Huh, maybe one day if I get good enough he'd sing with me."

    City and Colour opened for Pink on several dates of her Truth About Love tour. Once they got into the studio together, the pair recorded an entire album in about a week. This eponymous love ode was released as their debut single.
