Phoenix Announce New Album 'Ti Amo'

French disco-rock band Phoenix have announced they will release their sixth studio album titled 'Ti Amo' on June 9 via Glassnote Records.

The follow-up to 2013’s Bankrupt! was recorded in Paris in late 2014, a city that’s been rife with political and social tensions and plagued by multiple terrorist attacks over the last few years. In fact, on the night of the tragic Bataclan attack, guitarist Christian Mazzalai founded himself trapped in a studio where they had been recording after police officials issued a citywide shutdown.

“I think the record came out of darkness, out of concern,” said Daniel Glass, head of Phoenix’s record label, Glassnote. “But what’s resulted is this incredibly colorful record. And what we’re hearing from everybody, from KCRW to Apple to Pandora to Spotify, is that they’re loving this record. Because it makes them feel good.”

Glassnote label head Daniel Glass describes Ti Amo as “an incredibly colorful record,” while guitarist Laurent Brancowitz likens the pulse of the LP to “summer and Italian discos.” Much of the recording took place in an old opera house that had been “refashioned into a tech incubator, museum, and concert hall.”
