    A Crow Looked at Methe new album from Mount Eerie, is without a doubt going to be the most tragic release of 2017. Phil Elverum wrote the record in the wake of the death of his wife, Geneviève Castrée. The result is a heartbreakingly personal account of true loss, as heard on lead single “Real Death” and highlighted again on new track “Ravens”.

    Over meditative guitar and softly thumping percussive heartbeats, Elverum recounts the month following his wife’s passing. Every single line is painfully affecting, but perhaps none as tangibly so as, “I watched you die in this room, then I gave your clothes away/ I’m sorry, I had to/ And now I’ll move/ I will move with our daughter.” It’s gorgeous for all its pain, and you can listen via the above video, composed of footage Elverum and Castrée shot in the months before her death.

    A Crow Looked At Me is out March 24th via P.W. Elverum & Sun.
