French rock/house band Phoenix will release its fifth studio album, "Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix," on May 26. The ten-song set will come out worldwide via the band's own imprint Loyaute, and on Glassnote in the U.S..
"Wolfgang" was recorded in the Paris home studio of Cassius' Philippe Zdar, who co-produced the album. The group's first album since "It's Never Been Like This" in 2006, "Wolfgang" is anchored by the two-part ambient epic "Love Like A Sunset." The album also features the band's signature pop songs like "1901," "Rome," "Fences" and "Listzomania" run through heavy layers of French house music filters.
