Matthew Houck/Phosphorescent made fans happy today, with post on his MySpace Place with release date of new album.  Last Year, he released his moving tribute to Willie Nelson and his music, with To Willie.  Willie heard the album, and invited Matthew to play Farm Aid last year, in St. Louis, Missouri.

Here’s his post, from

The new Phosphorescent album Is coming
May 11 2010

It’s called

“Here’s To Taking It Easy
(Tho The Jaws Of This World Wish Only
To Grab Hold Of Your Sweet Ass)”

But that title is a little long ain’t it
So how about we take it easy indeed
And just call it

“Here’s To Taking It Easy”

I listened to it yesterday
For the first time since we finished it
& simply put 
I can not wait 
For this sucker to drop

The first song from it is now up
Here on the myspace player

Or you can download it over at:
or from the DEAD OCEANS site

Phos has been awhile gone from the internet
But there’s a lot of stuff we want to send your way
So keep your eyes peeled,
Your arms steeled,
Yourselves ripe

I am here
Hanging so 
So tuff,
I got to interview Matthew, right before Farm Aid last year, and he talked about his new album:
