    Mount Eerie and Julie Doiron have come together again for their newest release, Lost Wisdom Pt. 2. Stream it below via Apple Music or Spotify.

    The new album follows the two artists’ previous collaboration, 2008’s Lost Wisdom, as well as Phil Elverum’s Mount Eerie LP Now Only  from last yearPrior to the release, listeners heard “Love Without Possession” and “Belief pt. 2”, two tender songs plucked straight from the soft delicate sounds of PNW folk, evoking the melancholy landscape of turning tamarack woods.

    In a press release, Elverum explained the album’s content as coming from a place between grieving the passing of his late wife, Geneviève Castréehis, and his brief marriage with actress Michelle Williams. “Finding myself staring into another fire, disoriented by the changes, these songs came out,” he wrote. “I tried to make songs that did not rely at all on who I am or who I am singing about. ‘The song, not the singer’ is my guide, even while singing inescapably as and about myself.”
