PHOENIX Share New Song “Ti Amo” + New Album Out June 9

by the partae
“The band’s most unabashedly romantic record yet.” – The New York Times
“‘J-Boy’ begins as a sputtering electro dirge that sounds like it’s running out of batteries. But that’s merely the dingy, back-alley entrance to a dazzling, neon-lit discotheque whose doors swing open and whisk you in at the 10-second mark. The radiant synth sheen of the band’s recent records remains, but here it’s slathered onto a steady bass bounce…” – Pitchfork, Best New Track
“The Frenchmen sounded at the top of their game, the variety of synths and instruments creating a smooth, nostalgic mix that further augments the pop-indie vibes they’ve been working on since their inception. With Phoenix’s proven track record at writing songs that own the summer, Ti Amo is absolutely a record to get excited about.” – CLRVYNT
Phoenix are thrilled to introduce the self-titled track from their forthcoming album, Ti Amo, out on Loyaute/Glassnote Records on June 9th. Premiered earlier today by Sirius XM Alt Nation, “Ti Amo” is classic Phoenix with a sun-kissed, Italian twist, and hands down one of the most joyous songs you’ll hear in 2017. Listen HERE.
Says the band about the song “Ti Amo”:  
“‘Ti Amo’ is a romantic song about the tragedy of unreciprocated love and desire –
? 100% lover-0% violence?
Ti Amo is Phoenix‘s first album since 2013’s critically lauded Bankrupt!. Produced by the band and recorded at La Gaîté Lyrique (Paris) with the help of long time collaborator Pierrick Devin, Ti Amo is – in the band’s own words – “an album about simple pure emotions: love, desire, lust and innocence, it’s also a record about our European, Latin roots, a fantasized version of Italy: a lost paradise made of eternal Roman summers (hyper-light, hyper-clarity, pistachio gelato), juke-boxes on the beach, Monica Vitti and Marcello Mastroiani, fearless desire and Antique marble statues.
