Get ready: It seems we might be getting a new Phoenix album next year

Their last record, the glitzy, Italian summer-inspired Ti Amo, arrived back in 2017.

Over the last two decades, French rockers Pheonix have consistently been amongst the world's indie-dance-rock world's leading names; their sound morphing and moulding alongside the world's changing tastes across this time from the anthemic indie-rock showcased on their debut - 2000's If I Ever Feel Better-featuring United - right through to the layering of disco and funk that underpinned their last record, the glitzy, Italian summer-influenced Ti Amo, which despite its sound, was in fact written in the midst of France's year-engulfing terror attacks of 2016/2017.

Skip forward two years to present day, and it seems that Phoenix's reign isn't even close to being done. In 2020, the band are set to reunite once again, teasing forthcoming material - and news that they're working on their long-awaited Ti Amo follow-up - on a social media post from the recording studio, Paris' Motorbass Studio. The image - which you can see below - shows the band's name on a recording studio door, with the caption "Phoenix are back."

While it has only been two years since Ti Amo emerged (a short amount of time contrasted against the four-year break between Ti Amo and their career-defining Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix in 2013), we're definitely keen to see more Phoenix in the new decade, and considering their ability to move with the ever-changing curve, don't be surprised if it's just as incredible and forward-thinking as their past work was on-release - they're a genre-best band for a reason.

After visiting Australia for a remarkably quick run of shows in 2017 following the album, here hopes that new Phoenix next year will also mean new Australian tour dates too. Considering it's still near-impossible to not hear a Phoenix track when you're out at those indie-rock-esque club nights nowadays, we'd say there's definitely still enough hype for one to happen.
