Phoenix returned to New York City last night for an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman. In continued support of their new album, Bankrupt!, the French rockers welded “Trying to Be Cool” to the outro for “Drakkar Noir”.
The band also participated in the latest edition of the Live on Letterman webcast series. Their 45-minute set included several new tracks, specifically Entertainment, The Real Thing, Chloroform, and Don’t, in addition to past favorites like 1901 and Lisztomania.
Replay both performances below.
