Bowerbirds a folk trio, now the recording project of North Carolina singer-songwriter Phil Moore has announced its first new album since 2012. It’s titled “becalmyounglovers” and it arrives April 30th via Psychic Hotline. The new full-length follows a pair of EPs that were released last year, 2020 Singles and Azaleas. Bowerbirds’ last album “The Clearing” marked the band’s final recording with Beth Tacular, Moore’s ex–romantic and artistic partner. The two had a child together prior to the band’s split, as Moore explained in a statement last year. The new album is about his processing of the end of that long-term relationship.

Here’s what they say about it:
“Hi there. I’m pleased to share that the new Bowerbirds record (and first Bowerbirds album since 2012!) will be out on April 30th. We’re also doing a special limited run of the violet swirl vinyl, which will come with a signed poster of the cover artwork. The new single “Moon Phase” is out everywhere now, along with a music video I made.

I wrote and recorded becalmyounglovers in bits across six years, with help from a lot of friends, including Matt McCaughan, Alex Bingham, and Libby Rodenbough, with additional group vocals by Chessa Rich, Joseph Terrell, and Wood Robinson. Drums were recorded by Ari Picker at Goth Construction Studio, and the record was mixed and mastered by Zach Hansen at April Base out in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. I can’t wait for you to hear the whole thing. In the meantime, you can watch/listen/pre-order at the link in my bio.”


Releases April 30th, 2021
