As previously reported, Phil Elverum, AKA Mount Eerie, will issue his second album of 2012, Ocean Roar, on September 4th via P.W. Elverum & Sun, Ltd. Today, the follow up to this year’s Clear Moon finally has a first listen with a stream of its title track. While Elverum remains somber as ever, there’s a hopeful vibe to the mix further exemplified by cajoling schoolchildren. It’s delicate stuff, but it’s also a promising start for the project’s second go-around in 2012. Stream below.

 

In support of both releases, Elverum will hit the road for an exhaustive round of dates. Consult the itinerary shortly after the forthcoming album’s tracklist.
