Phosphorescent Announces New Album ‘Revelator’, Shares Video for New Single

    Phosphorescent has announced a new abum, Revelator, which is due for release on April  5 via Verve/Decca Records. It follows 2022’s The Full Moon Project, which saw Matthew Houck releasing monthly covers, and marks his first Phosphorescent LP since 2018’s C’est La Vie. Check out a video for the title track below, and scroll down for the album cover and tracklist.

    Speaking about the new track, Houck said:

    This is the song that made me realize I was writing an album.
    There’s always one that does that
    Until then I’m sort of floundering around with a bunch of song bits in various stages
    With no clear picture of what it is I’m doing

    Once the song ‘Revelator’ came to be
    I could see what the album could be

    I truly struggled with naming the album Revelator
    As I feel like it probably has certain biblical and genre connotations
    That don’t apply to this album or to Phosphorescent at all

    But in the end I know what I mean by it
    And the album really couldn’t be called anything else
    And so that’s why this is the title track

    I think it might be the best song I’ve ever written

    Revelator was produced by Houck and recorded in his Nashville studio over the course of six months. Collaborators on the album include Jack Lawrence of the Raconteurs, Jim White of Dirty Three, and Houck’s partner, singer-songwriter and pianist Jo Schornikow. Schornikow wrote an original song for the record, ‘The World Is Ending’, marking the first Phosphorescent track to be written by someone other than Houck.
