France's Phoenix are releasing a new album, Ti Amo, on June 9 via Glassnote. They have already shared its first single, shiny album opener "J-Boy" and performed the song on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to perform the song. Now they have shared a video for "J-Boy." The video aired on the band's website yesterday at various pre-announced times, as if it was a TV broadcast. Now the video is available to watch whenever you like it. Warren Fu directed the video, which features the band performing the song as if they are on a fake Italian TV show. Watch it below followed by the band's upcoming tour dates.

Phoenix previously issued a statement about Ti Amo, saying it's "an album about simple pure emotions: love, desire, lust and innocence, it's also a record about our European, Latin roots, a fantasized version of Italy: a lost paradise made of eternal Roman summers (hyper-light, hyper-clarity, pistachio gelato), juke-boxes on the beach, Monica Vitti and Marcello Mastroiani, fearless desire and Antique marble statues."

Phoenix last released an album in 2013 with Bankrupt!. Ti Amo was recorded in an old Paris opera house near the Pompidou Center. Starting in 2014 the band took over the top floor of the building that is now a museum, concert hall, and tech incubator.

Phoenix have previously announced a bunch of tour dates for this summer, shared a teaser video that included a snippet of new music, posted a Twitter video that hinted at a new song, and had a new song featured in a Calvin Kline underwear commercial directed by Sofia Coppola, the wife of Phoenix frontman Mars, that featured actresses Kirsten Dunst and Rashida Jones, among others.
