Phoenix will release a deluxe version of their new album 'Bankrupt!' with a disc 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. The French rockers will release their fifth album and the follow-up to 2009's 'Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix' on April 22; you can see the artwork above.

The band have been working on the record since 2011 and recently revealed that it was recorded on the same console as Michael Jackson's 1982 album, 'Thriller'. Guitarist Laurent Brancowitz bought the Harrison 4032 console on eBay for $17,000 (£10,826). The tracklisting to 'Bankrupt!' is as follows:

'Entertainment'
'The Real Thing'
'SOS In Bel Air'
'Trying To Be Cool'
'Bankrupt!'
'Drakkar Noir'
'Chlorophorm'
'Don't'
'Bourgeois'
'Oblique City'


Earlier this week Phoenix revealed they 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.
