The band are currently in the studio working on the follow-up to their last album, 2017’s ‘Ti Amo’.

‘Alpha Zulu’ is said to foreshadow the sound of Phoenix’s upcoming album, hinting at “bold new sonic horizons”.

The four-piece also shared a standalone single ‘Identical’ last summer. According to frontman Thomas Mars, ‘Identical’, which was released as part of the On The Rocks OST, will make it on a forthcoming album “somehow”.
