Phosphorescent, the musical project of songwriter Matthew Houck, has announced the arrival of a new album titled, Muchacho. The follow-up to the artist’s 2010 LP Here’s to Taking It Easy, the new record will see release in March on Dead Oceans.

According to a press release “as 2012 turned, Houck’s life began to unravel. A domestic crisis meant he had to find another apartment/studio at short notice, in the dead of winter, in accommodation-squeezed New York.” During this period Houck says “songs just started happening.” In the middle of “a freak-out” Houck booked a flight for Mexico. On a plane that was leaving three hours later, he finished writing the rest of the record in a little hut on the beach in Tulum, on the Yucatan Peninsula.
