Phosphorescent has announced a new single 'A Charm / A Blade' to be released on 27th May via Dead Oceans. The superlative track; all barreling piano and stabby horns galore, is the second to be taken from the critically acclaimed 'Muchacho', Matthew Houck's most stunning album yet, that received praise from all corners of the press on release last month.
The glorious new Phosphorescent live incarnation will return to the UK for some dates next month, playing a sold out Village Underground in London on the 15th May and The Great Escape the following day before heading to a newly-added date at Primavera in Barcelona. He will be back in the summer to play Green Man in August and more UK dates will be announced soon.
