Phosphorescent (aka Matthew Houck) released a new album, C'est La Vie, last month via Dead Oceans (it was our joint Album of the Week). Now he has stopped by SiriusXMU to perform a cover of Radiohead's "House of Cards," from their excellent 2007 album In Rainbows. Check out the cover below, followed by Phosphorescent's upcoming tour dates.

Previously Phosphorescent shared the album's first two singles, "New Birth in New England" (which was one of our Songs of the Week), "Christmas Down Under" (which was also one of our Songs of the Week), and almost title track "C'est La Vie No. 2." Then he stopped by The Late Late Show with James Corden to perform "New Birth in New England."

Pick up Under the Radar's current print issue (Issue 64) to read our exclusive joint interview between Phosphorescent and Ethan Hawke.

Phosphorescent's last album was 2013's Muchacho. In the five years since, Houck fell in love, had kids, and moved from New York to Nashville. Once there he built is own studio from scratch, Spirit Sounds Studio. C'est La Vie was recorded there and was produced by Houck. Houck mixed the album with Vance Powell (Jack White, Chris Stapleton, Arctic Monkeys). 

A previous press release described the album as such: "With a focus on translating these profound experiences to music as intuitively as he could, Houck pushes the boundaries of what a Phosphorescent record can sound like, balancing the earthy and the incandescent, the troubled and the serene, creating his own musical cosmos in the process."
