Phoenix unveil new single, 'Entertainment' [Listen]
Phoenix have unveiled the first single from their forthcoming new album, Bankrupt!, which is the band's fifth album, and the follow-up to 2009's Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix (released on April 22nd).
Two things we like about the track:
- 1. The lyric: "I'd rather be alone"
- 2. The kung-fu quality running throughout it. Wow.
Verdict: It's good to have you back, guys.
Check out 'Entertainment' below, which premiered on Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show this evening, along with the album tracklisting.
- The Real Thing
- S.O.S In Bel Air
