Phoenix, with the help of Clairo, have released a new version of “After Midnight”, a track off of their album Alpha Zulu released last November. The band’s world tour of the album will continue this summer when they make their return to Festivals across Europe and to North America for a co-headlining tour with Beck. “After Midnight” featuring Clairo is now available via DSPs and Glassnote.

On working with Clairo on ‘After Midnight’, Phoenix explain, “We’ve loved Claire since day 1! What a treat it is to have her sing with us! We hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we do ♥️”

The collaboration with Clairo marks only the second formal feature in the band’s history with their first having been on last year’s ‘Tonight’ (feat. Ezra Koenig). The features are not unconnected in that Phoenix were introduced to Clairo through Koenig’s Vampire Weekend former bandmate Rostam Batmangli’s work on her debut album Immunity.

On working with Phoenix, Clairo shares, “I’ve been a massive fan of Phoenix for as long as I can remember, and I’m very grateful that they asked me to sing on this remix.”

‘After Midnight’ (feat. Clairo) follows lauded singles ‘Alpha Zulu’, ‘Tonight’ (feat. Ezra Koenig) and ‘Winter Solstice’ which led into Alpha Zulu, the band’s first full length release in five years and the first album to be recorded in the Musée des Arts Décoratifs inside of the palace of the Louvre.
