Phosphorescent (aka Matthew Houck) released a new album, C'est La Vie, last fall via Dead Oceans (it was our joint Album of the Week and one of our Top 100 Albums of 2018). Now he has announced some new spring American tour dates. They go down this April and May and include shows in Charlottesville, Baltimore, Richmond, Ashville, Little Rock, Oklahoma City, Houston, Orlando, and more. Check them all out below.

Read our exclusive 2018 joint interview between Phosphorescent and Ethan Hawke.

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." He also covered Radiohead's "House of Cards."

Phosphorescent's previous 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."
