Citizen Cope’s 2019 album, Heroin and Helicopters, featured the lead single “Justice.” Writing about the song, NPR noted Cope’s “…impressive ability to pair deep-felt grooves and a memorable melody with wondrous lyrical simplicity that goes straight to the point and to the heart.” In 2021, Cope released The Pull of Niagara Falls, a lyrically heavy, ballad-based, new collection of previously unreleased songs.
