Ah, the wait is over.
After five long years, Phosphorescent (who topped our Best of the Past Ten Years listings earlier this year) are back with details of a new album C’est La Vie (out on Dead Oceans on the 5th October), and a new single New Birth in New England. There will also be three live dates in the UK in October.
The record chronicles a life-altering period which saw Matthew Houck fall in love, start a family, leave New York, build a studio from the ground up, and battle serious illness. The single is a deceptively breezy snapshot survey of some of those events and is currently on repeat here at MM Towers.
Stream it below. You can pre-order the album here.
