Phoenix – “Entertainment”

By Scott Lapatine / February 18, 2013 - 2:39 pm

Phoenix’s Bankrupt! is one of our most anticipated releases of this year. We’ve already seen the peachy album art and tracklist, but unless you were quick enough to scope the short-lived samples on their Amazon page, the only taste of music from the release has been this snippet of “Bourgeois” from the band’s album teaser. That changes today now that Zane Lowe debuted a full-length song on his BBC Radio show. “Entertainment” is a dependably ebullient, synth-driven cut that serves as the album’s first track and first single. It was mixed on the Thriller recording console, and you can check out the lyric video below.

“Entertainment” is out 2/19, and Bankrupt! follows 4/23 via Loyaute/Glassnote. Check out the band’s tour dates here.
