New Phosphorescent Album, First Single Revealed

25 Feb

Last year Matthew Houck dropped To Willie, a collection of amazing Willie Nelson covers that was definitely in heavy rotation on the Ipods of must Phosphorescent fans. Here’s To Taking It Easy is the follow up to the 2007 debut, Pride and it will finally see light on May 11th, 2010 courtesy of our friends at Dead Oceans. The first single, It’s Hard To Be Humble(When Your From Alabama) can found on Pitchfork. This song is probably one of the best songs of 2010 so far, but we’ll let you guys be the judges of that. Here is the tracklist for the new record

01 It’s Hard to Be Humble (When You’re From Alabama)
