Singers (styled SINGERS) is an album by Phil Elverum. The album is often credited to Elverum's musical project Mount Eerie (and includes several songs which re-appear on other Mount Eerie releases), although the sleevenotes offer the following declaration: THIS NEW BAND CALLED "SINGERS" IS BORN. THIS IS THE FIRST ALBUM BY SINGERS. The album was pressed on white vinyl and is now out-of-print.
