Phoenix have returned with their first new song in over three years, "Identical".

After teasing the new track over the past week, Phoenix have finally released "Identical" as their first new outing since their 2017 LP Ti Amo.

The band write on Twitter that the song is released in memory of their late collaborator Philippe Zdar, and will feature on the soundtrack for upcoming film On The Rocks, which stars Bill Murray, Rashida Jones, and Marlon Wayans, and is directed by Sofia Coppola.

According to Rolling Stone, "Identical" will play during the end credits of On The Rocks, but Phoenix have also scored and assembled the soundtrack for the entire film, marking their fifth collaboration with director Sofia Coppola.

The band are also releasing a limited edition 7" vinyl that includes b-sides of songs from On The Rocks.

Phoenix's new single "Identical" is out now on Loyaute/Glassnote Records. On The Rocks will be released on AppleTV+ in October.
