Phoenix To Release New Album on Arts & Crafts

 
By: Spacelab Research Staff
French indie pop band Phoenix have signed to Arts & Crafts, the famous Canadian label that plays home to the Broken Social Scene collective of bands, including Feist, Apostle of Hustle, The Most Serene Republic and more. This will be the first European band to sign on to the label, and it's also an unusual step outside of the family of familiarity that Arts & Crafts has shown in the past.

Phoenix create poppy sounding songs with hooks and a french influence, sung in english. Their new album, It's Never Been Like That, will be released on Astralwerks in Europe and the US on May 23rd; and June 13th for Canada, courtesy of Arts & Crafts.

As for now, the band is at home in Versailles, rehearsing for upcoming shows. “This was about starting all over, it was about making ourselves scared again.” said vocalist Thomas Mars. “It is going to be fun.”
