Although Phoenix are yet to follow up their 2017 album Ti Amo, they did return with "Identical" in August 2020, which featured on the On The Rocks film soundtrack and was dedicated to their late collaborator Philippe Zdar,

Yesterday (12 January) the group uploaded a monochrome video filmed by Guillaume Delaperriere that shows Phoenix rehearsing, or potentially recording music in Paris' Musée des Arts décoratifs, filmed through a window from the exterior.

Phoenix wrote alongside the video, "New Year, new studio #7."

The "#7" at the end of the caption hints that Phoenix are recording their seventh album.

Phoenix are yet to announce a new album.
