Phoenix have shared a new song titled ‘Identical’. It’s taken from the soundtrack to Sofia Coppola’s upcoming movie On the Rocks, starring Bill Murray, Rashida Jones, and Marlon Wayans. It arrives with a video directed by Roman Coppola and dedicated to the the late Philippe Zdar. Check it out below.
Phoenix’s score for On the Rocks will mark their fifth film collaboration with Coppola, whose husband is Phoenix leader Thomas Mars. ‘Identical’ is also the first new music from the band since 2017’s Ti Amo. In a new interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, Mars discussed working on the follow-up to that album: “There’s no coherence and it’s a little bit like our first record, maybe, United, which had songs that would explore heavy metal and then country music. And then this is the same sort of weird Frankenstein of an album,” he said.
On the Rocks comes out in October via Apple TV+.
