Phosphorescent covers "To Love Somebody"

P Squared

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... Recently my tiny animal brain had an epiphany: ‘How dense are you, bub?’ it said ‘This is easy. Record it. Then put it out there. Duh.’ And then, ‘Maybe the moon can help. Look to it. There’s a mile-long list of songs that’ve meant the world to me. And I’d like to try my hand at 'em.”
