Today, acclaimed, GRAMMY-winning French band Phoenix has shared their first new track in two years, out now on Glassnote Records. Entitled “Alpha Zulu,” the song is a radiant departure from Phoenix songs of yore, pointing towards bold new sonic horizons for one of the most beloved, innovative bands of the last two decades. “Alpha Zulu” is both a reminder of Phoenix’s enduring influence on pop culture, and a blockbusting calling card for what’s next for the four men from Versailles.
The title and lyric “Alpha Zulu” comes from a phrase Phoenix front man Thomas Mars heard a pilot repeating over the radio during a turbulent flight in a storm. The urgency of the phrase stayed with him, and the band’s new song was born.
