Published Mar 16, 2017At long last, Phil Elverum's new Mount Eerie album has arrived.
As previously reported, A Crow Looked at Me explores the aftermath of the tragic death of his wife Geneviève Elverum, and you can now take that very personal journey alongside Elverum in the full-album stream below.
A press release previously stated this about the new album:
The songs are about the brutal details of that experience, from the hospitalizations to the grieving, the specific domestic banalities that become existential in the context of such huge and abrupt loss. These songs are not fun. They are pretty and they are deep, and they find a love that prevails beneath the overwhelming and real sorrow. It is unlike anything else in the Mount Eerie catalog in its unvarnished expressions of personal grief, metaphor-free.
A Crow Looked at Me is due out March 24 via P.W. Elverum & Sun, but you can stream it now via NPR in the player below.
