France’s Phoenix released a new album, Ti Amo, back in June via Glassnote. Now the band have shared a video for title track “Ti Amo” and last night they stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers to perform “Telefono.”

WIISSA directed the “Ti Amo” video, which was shot in 16mm and features the band in Italy, intercut with stock footage, likely from the 1950s and 1960s. Special limited edition VHS copies of the video will be available in the Supermercato vending machine on tour. The Seth Meyers performance started with frontman Thomas Mars answering the phone in a “Telefono” phone booth on the stage. Watch both the video and Seth Meyers performance below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Read our recent interview with Phoenix about Ti Amo.

Previously Phoenix shared Ti Amo‘s first single, shiny album opener “J-Boy,” performed the song on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and shared a video for the song. They also shared a lyric video for the album’s title track, “Ti Amo,” the audio for the relaxed “Goodbye Soleil,” and a video for “Goodbye Soleil.”

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.
