French indie-rockers Phoenix have finished the follow-up to their 2009 breakout album Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. It should be released in April, said Daniel Glass – head of the group's label, Glassnote – at today's Spotify event.

Glass tossed out the Phoenix announcement at the very end of the conversation, mentioning that he'd just gotten off the phone with the band and that they had completed the record in a Paris studio.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
