Phoenix stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to play four cuts off their new album, Bankrupt! The French rockers dug into “Trying to be Cool,” “Drakkar Noir,” and “Chloroform” – and here, they take “Entertainment” to swirling heights with hypnotic synths and Thomas Mars’ elegant vocal caress.
Phoenix will play Coachella again this weekend after bringing out R. Kelly during their headlining set at the festival last weekend. The festival performances gave the band a catalyst to complete Bankrupt!, the follow-up to their 2009 breakout Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. “That gave us a deadline for the record,” Mars told Rolling Stone last month. “Then we started to feel the pressure.”
Bankrupt! is out April 23rd. Check out the rest of Phoenix’s peformance on Kimmel below.
