Phoenix: I'll Be Anything You Ask and More

Phoenix is a French alternative rock band with a note of electronic in their sound.  Forming in 1995, it wasn't until 2000 that the band released their debut United.  Despite regular releases throughout the decade, it was 2009's released Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, that exploded Phoenix into the forefront of the music world.  Songs like "1901" and "Lisztomania" were featured in a number of shows and movies.  The album was nominated and won 'Best Alternative Music Album" at the Grammy's in January of 2010.  Soon after "1901" soared to #1 on the music charts.

This past spring Phoenix announced they were entering the studio to record the next release.  This time the music world will be anxiously awaiting the byproduct of those sessions.  Here's Phoenix performing "1901"!
