Phosphorescent Brings “Song for Zula” With Strings and Swagger to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon

 

Phosphorescent brought a transcendent performance of Muchacho‘s breakout hit “Song for Zula” to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night. The touring band was joined by a string section – making an already special rendition even more gorgeous. Grab a handkerchief and enjoy a good cry. This is television magic, people!

Also just in: a new feature about Phosphorescent at Urban Outfitters! And a word to you New Yorkers: go see Phosphorescent at the Crossing Brooklyn Ferry festival on Saturday night. It’ll be a Dessner-approved good time.

Phosphorescent Premieres “Song For Zula” Video at NPR

Premiering this morning at NPR’s All Songs Considered, it is the new Djuna Wahlrab & Matthew Houck co-directed video for “Song For Zula.” Captured in one continuous, slow-motion shot, the video focuses in on a woman as she painfully tries to free herself. From what you ask? Watch above to find out.

“Song For Zula” is featured on Phosphorescent’s recently released Muchacho. You can find your copy at SC Distribution, iTunes, Amazon or from Matthew himself at one of their forthcoming shows. If you are planning to attend a show, consider purchasing your tickets in advance; venues are selling out quickly! Oh and here’s a taste of what to expect in the live show – Phosphorescent live at SXSW for WFUV.

Phosphorescent’s “Muchacho” coming March 19th – Stream “Song For Zula”

 

Incredible news today for Phosphorescent fans! NEW RECORD IS COMING! Muchacho will be out on March 19th, and we have the first single, “Song For Zula,” for streaming.

Muchacho is already described as “a clear departure from the honky-tonk classic rock of 2010′s Here’s To Taking It Easy, and an assemblage of underwater hymns redolent of both record’s spare, sometimes psychedelic predecessor, 2007′s Pride.” More details about the recording of Muchacho and a photo gallery of Matthew in his recording studio ran last month at SPIN.com.

Lyrics for “Song For Zula” are after the jump!
