Artists and critics wax rhapsodic about Phil Elverum, but a deep understanding of his work is only beginning to emerge. His dark, compelling tales continue to mesmerize, and we are indebted to the man who always keeps us on our toes. Elverum, or Mount Eerie, if you will, will release a new album with Julie Doiron in early November.

Lost Wisdom pt. 2 will come out on Elverum’s own P.W. Elverum & Sun label November 8. This is his second record with the ex-Eric’s Trip singer, and while we sometimes say things lightly, this time, we DON’T say this lightly: the first single from the album is ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS. Speaking about the collaboration, Elverum says,

In a grab for deeper continuity, I called and asked Julie Doiron if she could join me in the recording. She has been my favorite singer since 1993 when I first heard her band Eric’s Trip and subsequently devoted my life to music and art. This 26-year path from teenage obsession to collaborator has made me feel very fortunate. We made another record in 2008 called Lost Wisdom, more flames, more love, more turmoil. Now we get to do some more singing and playing together.

Here’s the video for “Love Without Possession,” and here’s the album pre-order.
