Phosphorescent covers "To Love Somebody"
In January Phosphorescent (aka Matthew Houck) announced he would be sharing a series of cover songs he dubbed The Full Moon Project, a series in which he would release a new tune with each full moon.
“I’ve been thinkin awhile now on how to release more music … Separate from the modern album release cycle … And all its requirements and pressures etc...
