Phoenix Detail <i>Ti Amo</i>, Share Irresistible Lead Single "J-Boy"

Phoenix’s de facto album announcement went out earlier this week in a revealing New York Times interview, but now the French indie-pop powerhouse has put out all the details of Ti Amo, not to mention our first sampling from the album, sleek lead single “J-Boy.”

Today’s formal announcement confirms that Ti Amo is due out on June 9 via Loyaute/Glassnote, more than four years after the spring 2013 release of their fifth LP, Bankrupt! Produced by Phoenix and recorded at La Gaîté Lyrique in Paris alongside their long-time collaborator Pierrick Devin, the new record 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.

“J-Boy” is a stylish, synth-heavy track that is arguably the most dance-floor-flooding jam Phoenix have ever released. Thomas Mars sings about being “higher than a disco ball” while shimmering, staccato keys and an insistent beat set toes across the world a-tapping. The track will see its TV debut when Phoenix perform on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on May 2.

Hear “J-Boy” below or via your streaming service of choice here, find the Ti Amo tracklist and album art beneath that, and see if Phoenix is coming to your city even further down—the quartet is touring the world through September in support of Ti Amo.
