Phil Elverum sang an a capella song and read a few poems for the latest episode of the NTS Radio show Plastic Language. Elverum wrote the lyrics for a future Mount Eerie release and recorded them in west London’s Holland Park between tour dates in the city last month. The a capella “Night Palace” opens the episode; at 23:05, Elverum muses on whether music and poetry are distinct and segues into a poem called “Co-Owner of Trees”; and at 50:46, he reads and sings a poem he introduces as “Unnamed.” Listen at NTS or below.

Action Pyramid made the recordings. This January, Mount Eerie shared a new song called “Huge Fire,” and Elverum announced in April that a new album is in the works. His last full-length was the Microphones’ Microphones in 2020.
