The first track has surfaced from the new Phoenix album Bankrupt!
Entertainment was broadcast by Zane Lowe on Radio 1 in the UK, and has since appeared on YouTube with a home made lyric video.
It's probably safe to say that the new album is the most anticipated French release this year.
Earlier details published on the band's website gave the tracklisting as:
The Real Thing
S.O.S In Bel Air
Trying To Be Cool
Details of the cover of the album emerged the other week, and the appearance of a new track gives the clearest indication yet of what the final album will sound like.
Phoenix have confirmed festival dates over the summer, with shows in the USA in March and April beforehand. Their festival dates include Coachella, Primavera, Rock Im Park and Rock en Seine, and confirmed yesterday that they would be playing T in the Park.
Worth the wait since 2009? We'll find out on April 22.
