Phosphorescent to release Willie Nelson covers album
Matthew Houck doesn't play live as Phosphorescent alone anymore. It's a change, but a good one, as 2007's wondrous Pride featured dark-cloud chorales and otherwise lush treatment of Houck's folk tunes—layers that the live show now reflects.
Houck recently described his feelings on To Willie to The Fader's F2: "It's terribly sad," he said. "A downer record. But it's great. It's so good."
To Willie tracklist:
