Phoenix Release New Song
As promised, French indie rockers Phoenix have unveiled the first song from their new album. It’s called ‘Entertainment,’ and it’s filled with the swooshing synths, jumpy dance grooves and monster hooks that made their fourth album, ‘Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix,’ a hit four years ago.
Last week, the band shared info about their upcoming album ‘Bankrupt!,’ their first album since 2009′s breakthrough. The record — which was recorded on the same vintage console used to make Michael Jackson’s gazillion-selling ‘Thriller’ — will be released on April 23.
Phoenix teased part of the album on their website last week. They also released info about their upcoming tour, which kicks off in Vancouver on March 28. And keeping with the fruity theme of ‘Bankrupt!’ (the cover features a peach), the artwork for ‘Entertainment’ includes a pineapple. The new song premiered on BBC Radio 1′s Zane Lowe program. Give it a listen below.
