Hear the heart-rending first track ‘Distortion’.
Phil Elverum is releasing Now Only, a new Mount Eerie album and follow-up to last year’s A Crow Looked At Me – one of our favourite albums of 2017 – this March via P.W. Elverum & Sun.
While A Crow Looked At Me quickly came together in the immediate aftermath of the death of Elverum’s wife, musician and artist Geneviève Castrée, Now Only includes songs he wrote and performed while touring in 2017.
Elverum has also shared its first single, the 11-minute track ‘Distortion’, which continues his reflections on death, grief and becoming a single parent while evolving his newfound stream-of-consciousness lyrical style.
