In the weeks since Phoenix dropped “Entertainment,” the bright and candy-colored first single from their forthcoming album Bankrupt!, we’ve heard way-different versions of the song from Dinosaur Jr. and Blood Orange. And now Phoenix themselves have offered their own divergent take on the song. Performing it live for the first time for Canada’s QTV, the band gave a stripped-back, drumless take on the track, limiting themselves to acoustic guitars and keyboard and revealing the song to be a more vulnerable thing than the studio version would’ve had us believe. Watch the performance below.
