Phosphorescent streams "Nothing Was Stolen (Love Me Foolishly)" from upcoming live triple-LP

Late last year Phosphorescent announced the release of a triple-disc live album called Live At The Music Hall. You can now stream "Nothing Was Stolen (Love Me Foolishly)" from the collection.

Speaking about the track, Phosphorescent frontman Matthew Houck said:

“’Nothing Was Stolen (Love Me Foolishly)’ is probably the most straightforward four-on-the-floor-type pop song I've got. I wouldn't have expected it to become a live staple but it has consistently found a spot in the sets over the last couple years.

“I think of shows the same way I think of albums in that, ideally, you can establish a world and then create something like a journey within that world. That said, I rarely make set-lists because you never know what kind of vibe the evening might bring. So it's sort of like sequencing an album in real-time; reacting to the the room and the crowd and the band; and aiming for a nice arc.

“Anyway, ‘Nothing Was Stolen’ has established itself as a welcome guest on these journeys. Like an easy-going buddy who pops in and refreshes the party. Maybe lightens the mood if needed. Or maybe focuses the mood if that's what's needed.

“Also it gives me the chance to give shout-outs to whoever's gonna take the solos. I enjoy that bit."

The live collection chronicles a December 2013 four-night residence at The Music Hall in Brooklyn. It's due out 16 February on Dead Oceans.
