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.

Phoenix have been working on this next record since 2011. While no official title has been announced yet, it could be TPC, based on some artwork that appears on the band's website.

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
