New song out from Phoenix!

Well, it is no big secret that the new Phoenix album, entitled ‘Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix’, will be released to the world on May 25th, 2009 – the date has been splashed across their official website for quite some time now. I don’t know about you, but I’m eagerly awaiting the day when I can get my grubby little paws upon it (90 days to go!)

At the moment, you can download a new tune entitled ‘1901’, a song presumably off the new album, from their official website. It’s a catchy little ditty, much like all their great songs, but, stylistically, there is a noticeable difference from the songs off their last long player, the great 2006 release ‘It’s Never Been Like That’.

Do I detect a bit more synth? Most of the songs off the last album were ‘guitar songs’, with little reliance on keys or other effects. I detect a different sense of direction going by this new tune. Don’t get me wrong, it is definitely not bad, in fact, it is actually quite good.

Anyway, indulge yourself in a download and have a listen and let me know if I’m completely off the map.
