Phosphorescent (aka Matthew Houck) has announced a new album, C'est La Vie, and shared its first single, "New Birth in New England." C'est La Vie is the first Phosphorescent album in five years and is due out October 5 via Dead Oceans. Listen to the gospel-tinged "New Birth in New England" below, followed by the album's tracklist and cover art. He's also announced some tour dates, which are below too.

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 press release describes 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."
