‘Entertainment’ is the highly anticipated lead single off of Phoenix’s long-awaited fifth album, ‘Bankrupt!’. Although made by the same four men, it sounds almost nothing like old Phoenix singles. A song driven by synths and drums, Phoenix have taken their sound to soaring new heights.

‘Bankrupt!’ is the first new Phoenix album in four years. It is not a political or financial statement. It does not offer solutions to the world’s great problems or suggest excitement over insolvency. ‘Bankrupt’ was written and recorded in New York City, New York, U.S.A., and Paris, France. It was produced by the band and Philippe Zdar in Montmartre. This album is the follow up to the ARIA-certified Gold-selling and Grammy Award-winning album, ‘Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix’. In late 2010, the band entered Oscilloscope Laboratories in Manhattan, New York City, and commenced experiments with sound and colour. This period of experimentation lasted for three months. After the New York sessions, the members dispersed to points across the globe and continued their work together by means of modern communication devices. In Spring of 2011, they reconvened at the Studio d’Herbécourt in Paris for recording sessions, before finally joining Zdar in his studio for mixing at the end of 2012. Again, it will not solve problems. It may, however, provide catharsis, elation or inspiration.

Already proving to be a firm favourite on Australian radio, ‘Entertainment’ is set to be one of the biggest singles of 2013. The single was just added to Radio 1 in the UK, with the rest of the world expected to follow suit.
