Phoenix Ready Amusingly Titled New Album, Give Away Song for Free


Estimate the combined cost of those haircuts.

Buoyant French fluxpop artistes Phoenix return May 25th with Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix; as that’s a ways away yet, please accept a free MP3 of the excellent track “1901,” which deftly anticipates springtime and, like, the band’s best work, boasts a sugary sweetness but never gets too twee, too cute, too frail, too smug, its twittering guitars undercut nicely by farting synths. Sofia Coppola is bound to make a lovely video for it.
