French heroes Phoenix have released the video for their new single 'J-Boy'. Check out the clip below.

Yesterday, the band premiered the new video as multiple broadcasts on their website across the day. Now, the clip is available to stream in full on YouTube.

Thomas Mars and co are seen giving a fake TV performance of the track, surrounded by shimmering mirrored walls of kaleidoscopic visuals. The video is directed by Warren Fu - who put his unique, signature stamp over the new single.

Fu has previously worked with the likes of The Weeknd, The Strokes, Daft Punk, Haim and Depeche Mode.

'J-Boy' is a typically sun-kissed anthem from Phoenix, brimming with analogue synths. It is the first track taken from the band's upcoming sixth album Ti Amo. Their last album was 2013's Bankrupt.

The band describe the ingredients of the upcoming LP as being "simple, pure emotions: love, desire, lust and innocence," and "a fantasised version of Italy: a lost paradise made of eternal Roman summers." We like the sound of that.

Phoenix recently performed 'J-Boy' live on Jimmy Fallon, and are due to take their summer-infused new material to the festivals -  the band are set to 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.
