The French band, who returned recently with the song ‘Alpha Zulu’, have been working on their seventh album. It will be the follow-up to 2017’s ‘Ti Amo’ and has been described by the group as a “weird Frankenstein of an album”.
According to a press release, ‘Alpha Zulu’ foreshadows the sound of Phoenix’s upcoming album, hinting at “bold new sonic horizons.”
In a tweet shared earlier today (August 30) the band wrote “Done in the studio – new music coming” alongside a video of bassist Deck d’Arcy playing a riff in a recording room.

The band shared the music video for their latest single in June and also posted details of a North American and European tour. It kicks off in on September 6 at St. Paul’s Palace Theatre in Minnesota, US before wrapping at Paris’ Olympia venue on November 29.
Last year, the four-piece shared a standalone single called ‘Identical’. According to singer Thomas Mars, ‘Identical’, which was released as part of the On The Rocks OST, will make it on a forthcoming album “somehow”.
At the time of the song’s arrival, Mars offered an update on what the band’s upcoming album might sound like. “There’s no coherence, and it’s a little bit like our first record, maybe, ‘United’, which had songs that would explore heavy metal and then country music.”
Mars added: “This is the same sort of weird Frankenstein of an album.”
Phoenix have not confirmed a release date nor a title for their seventh album.
