Phoenix have shared 'Ti Amo', taken from their upcoming new album of the same name. Check out the retro lyric video below.

Last week, the French band premiered the video for the brilliant lead single 'J-Boy', directed by Warren Fu. The clip features the band performing on a fake 80s TV set.

Now, Thomas Mars and friends have shared the sleazy synth-y groove of 'Ti Amo' - the title track from their first record in four years.

The new cut certainly lives up to the band's description of new material - previously described as being full of "pure emotions: love, desire, lust" and "a fantasised version of Italy".

Mars croons in multiple languages about the 'tragedy of unreciprocated love and desire' on the track, which is infused with imagery of an Italian summer party. "I'll be standing by the jukebox / Champagne of Prosecco? / Playing classics by the Buzzcocks / Battiato and Lucio," Mars sings. 

Ti Amo is the band's sixth full-length record and follows 2013's Bankrupt. 

The band recently performed 'J-Boy' live on Jimmy Fallon, and are due to take their summer sound to the festivals. Phoenix will play Nos Alive, Bilbao BBK and Glastonbury. They will then return to the UK for a headline show at London's Alexandra Palace on September 30.

Ti Amo is released 9 June.
