Phosphorescent Returns with 'C'est La Vie' LP
Over five years removed from releasing his Muchacho LP, Phosphorescent has now shared details on a follow-up effort.

Titled C'est La Vie, the latest from singer-songwriter Matthew Houck will arrive October 5 through Dead Oceans. Nine tracks in length, the album was self-produced and marks Houck's first release under the moniker since 2015's Live at the Music Hall

A taste of what's to come from C'est La Vie can be heard below with "New Birth in New England." Houck has also mapped out a lengthy run of tour dates in support of the release, and the trek includes a lone Canadian stop at Toronto's Mod Club on December.
