Dinosaur Jr also recently covered ‘Entertainment’. Phoenix frontman Thomas Mars said of the band: “My brother David took me to see Dinosaur Jr live in Paris around the time when ‘Green Mind’ was released. I have been a fan since then.”
The original version of the song is the opening number on Phoenix’s forthcoming ‘Bankrupt!’ album, set for release on April 22.
Phoenix will release a deluxe version of the album featuring 71 bonus tracks. The numerous “demos and sketches” will run to over an hour’s worth of extra material for fans to hear. Among the 71 tracks on the deluxe edition are many songs under a minute long, with one track, ‘Aristotle’, clocking in at just one second.
Phoenix will play a live date at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire on April 22. The band have also been confirmed to headline the NME/ Radio 1 Tent at this year’s Reading and Leeds Festivals.
