Phosphorescent, It’s Hard To Be Humble (When You’re From Alabama) [new mp3]

by oz on February 27, 2010


Phosphorescent is set to follow up his Willie Nelson tribute album, To Willie, with a fresh batch of original tunes. Here’s To Taking It Easy will be released on May 10th via Dead Oceans.

Unlike his last haunting and introspective album of original work, Pride, his latest features a full band on tracks reminiscent of early 70’s Stones and Bob Dylan’s Street Legal. I can’t wait.

I like this song… just not as much as Pride. That album gives me chills everytime I listen to it.

We were very fortunate to have Phosphorescent visit the freqControl Sessions to record live, in-studio performances of three of their songs, and one Willie Nelson cover. You can check it out at Hope you enjoy!
