For a guy who, by his own admission, has never had a hit record, Citizen Cope has managed to carve out a pretty healthy niche for himself over the course of his 20-year recording career, with five studio albums to his credit and a sixth -- 'One Lovely Day' -- on the horizon.
Following up on 2010's 'The Rainwater LP,' singer-songwriter Citizen Cope will return with his sixth album, 'One Lovely Day,' on July 17. Fittingly, the hard-touring Cope (a.k.a. Clarence Greenwood) is planning to embark on a series of headlining dates to support the new LP.
Citizen Cope's 'One Lovely Day' isn't exactly a new song -- he's been playing it live since at least 2010, if YouTube footage is to be believed -- but it apparently never has been recorded before now, and it will be featured on the soundtrack to the forthcoming flick 'Battleship.' That movie, a sci-fi action film based on the board game of the same name, hits theaters this Friday (May 18).
