Adam here with a new tune from Phosphorescent as my DJ pick of the week. “Song For Zula” is one of my favorite songs of all time, and I am through the roof thrilled to have new music from Matthew Houck. Check out “New Birth in New England” off Phosphorescent’s forthcoming album C’est La Vie out Oct. 5 via Dead Oceans.
C’est La Vie comes five years after the release of 2013’s Muchacho. The nine-track album came about after Houck created a new life for himself, moving from New York to Nashville after starting a family. There, he built his new Spirit Sounds Studio specifically to record this album. Phosphorescent sought to balance “the earthy and the incandescent, the troubled and the serene” in songs that captured all the recent transitions in his world. Listen to “New Birth in New England” below and let us know what you think. Pre-order C’est La Vie here.
