Phoenix reveals tune from upcoming album; listen to “Entertainment”


Cover art for Phoenix’s brand new single, “Entertainment”.

So. I’ve been waiting a long, long time for this… Phoenix just released the first track off their new album Bankrupt!. It’s called “Entertainment” and, for those of you that were wondering whether the French band would try something new sonically, you will be pleased. Of course, this sounds like Phoenix – it’s catchy, with its beats, and staccato guitar riffs. But the intro? I don’t know. I thought it brought something new to the table. A different kind of sound. Somewhat Asian in influence? I don’t know. Those are just my initial thoughts on the track.

If you like what you hear, check out any of their previous records. My favorites are Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix and It’s Never Been Like That, but anything you can get your hands on will please you.

Here’s the tracklist for Bankrupt!:

01 Entertainment
02 The Real Thing
03 SOS in Bel Air
04 Trying to Be Cool
05 Bankrupt!
06 Drakkar Noir
07 Chloroform
08 Don’t
09 Bourgeois
10 Oblique City

Phoenix’s new album will be out on April 23rd in the U.S. and April 22nd in the UK.
