Phosphorescent (aka Matthew Houck) is releasing a new album, C'est La Vie, on October 5 via Dead Oceans. Previously he shared its first single, "New Birth in New England" (which was one of our Songs of the Week). Now he has shared another song from the album, "Christmas Down Under." It's a mix of Auto-Tune, slide guitar, and backing vocals. Listen below, followed by his upcoming tour dates.

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."
