Phoenix preview new album with lead single “J-Boy” — listen

on April 27, 2017, 12:55pm

On June 9th, Phoenix will return with their first album in four years, Ti Amo. Today, they’ve shared its lead single, a strutting and synth-speckled cut called “J-Boy”. Stream it down below.

In addition, the French indie pop outfit has offered up more details on Ti Amo, which guitarist Laurent Brancowitz has likened to “summer and Italian discos.” The Bankrupt! follow-up is heavily inspired by a romanticized vision of Italy and built around “simple, pure emotions: love, desire, lust, and innocence.”

“It’s also a record about our European, Latin roots, a fantasized version of Italy,” the band explains in a press release, “a lost paradise made of eternal Roman summers (hyper-light, hyper-clarity, pistachio gelato), jukeboxes on the beach, Monica Vitti and Marcello Mastroianni, fearless desire and antique marble statues.”

Phoenix have a lengthy run of tour dates scheduled for the next few months in support of the new album.
