Phoenix have shared the third single from their upcoming album Alpha Zulu, due November 4. The French band's new track is titled “Winter Solstice,” and comes with a German expressionist-style video directed by Warren Fu. Check it out below.
As noted in a press release, “Winter Solstice” is the only Alpha Zulu track not created by the band together in the studio. It was written remotely across two continents, with Lauren Brancowitz, Christian Mazzalai, and Deck D’Arcy sending a loop to frontman Thomas Mars, who then recorded a stream of consciousness.
Alpha Zulu is Phoenix's first album since 2017’s Ti Amo and was recorded by the band in Paris’ Musée des Arts Décoratifs, located inside the Palais du Louvre. The album title track was released back in June and was followed by Era Koenig collaboration "Tonight."
Phoenix are on the road across North America through September and into October. Their tour will then take them across Europe into late 2022.
