Phoenix Announce 71 Track ‘Bankrupt’ Deluxe Edition


Phoenix have announced they will be releasing a deluxe version of their new album ‘Bankrupt!’ on April 22, 2013 with a disc featuring 71 bonus tracks.

Among the 71 tracks and over an hour’s worth of extra material are many songs under a minute long, with one track, ‘Aristotle’, clocking in at just one second.

The band have been working on the record since 2011 and recently revealed that it was recorded on the same console as Michael Jackson’s 1982 album, ‘Thriller’. Guitarist Laurent Brancowitz bought the Harrison 4032 console on eBay for $17,000 (£10,826). The tracklisting to ‘Bankrupt!’ is as follows:

‘The Real Thing’
‘SOS In Bel Air’
‘Trying To Be Cool’
‘Drakkar Noir’
‘Oblique City’

Phoenix will play a live date at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire on April 22 and have been confirmed to headline the NME/ Radio 1 Tent at this year’s Reading and Leeds Festivals.
