Mount Eerie & Julie Doiron share “Belief pt. 2″ from new album, expand tour
Mount Eerie (Phil Elverum) and Julie Doiron have shared a second single from their upcoming collaborative album. The beautiful, eliagaic "Belief Pt 2" closes the album and here's waht Phil says about it:
“Belief pt. 2” is the last song on the album. It comes at the end of a meandering path through uncertainty, devotion, sad reminiscence, hopeful idealism; songs coursing over uneven terrain. This album conclusion is a flag planted, a declaration of belief in love no matter what, the culminating answer to all of the asking that came before. Eroded down by life’s changes to an elemental necessity, I make an offering of a final simple gesture of love.
Julie and I recorded this song at night with the doors and windows all the way open, hoping to get the nighthawks and night air onto the recording. The other songs were recorded during the day, but this song is a night song. We tried to make our version of sacred music, under stars in the high dark cool air.
That album, Lost Wisdom Pt. 2, is out November 8 and Phil and Julie will be on tour together in December, including a NYC show at St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church on 12/14 (tickets). They've added a few shows to the tour, including Montreal and a second Los Angeles show. All dates are listed below.
