For the first time since 2009’s “Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix,” Phoenix has released a new song from the upcoming album, “Bankrupt!.” Listen to the new Phoenix song “Entertainment” below.

The track premiered on Zane Lowe’s show on BBC Radio 1 and includes a homemade lyric video. The French alternative pop/rock band’s 5th studio album will be out on April 23 in the U.S. via Loyaute/Glassnote. Phoenix has already announced dates at the New Orleans Jazz Fest, Primavera Sound Festival and Coachella, with no Colorado dates on the radar.

“Entertainment” features an eastern-sounding synth hook, along with much of the chorus hooks that were prominant on “Wolfgang.”

Here is the track lineup for the upcoming album:

01 Entertainment
02 The Real Thing
03 SOS in Bel Air
04 Trying to Be Cool
05 Bankrupt!
06 Drakkar Noir
07 Chloroform
08 Don’t
09 Bourgeois
10 Oblique City
