Phil's new solo album Cassandra Lied was recorded in Prague between August 2018 and November 2019. He was joined in this endeavour by several notable musicians, including co-producer and band-mate Chris Hughes (drummer with These Immortal Souls, Mick Harvey, Hugo Race, Alexander Hacke), and lapsteel guitarist Kristof Hahn of Swans. A radical departure from Phil's previous work, Cassandra Lied has a lyrical depth which is comparable to the work of rock poets such as Leonard Cohen, Lou Reed, Patti Smith and Nick Cave. The music itself is closer to the layered, atmospheric approach of artists like Brian Eno, David Bowie and Tony Visconti than it is to traditional rock dynamics. Other influences on this album are post-punk bands such as Joy Division and Krautrock bands Neu and La Dusseldorf.
