Phoenix have been slowly drip feeding us new music over the past few months, but the latest bite comes in an unlikely form – the soundtrack to a new Calvin Klein ad.
Greatest ad ever? Phoenix preview a new tune in Sofia Coppola-directed Calvin Klein campaign ad featuring Rashida Jones, Kirsten Dunst and more.
The sultry black-and-white clip is directed by Sofia Coppola (who is married to Phoenix frontman Thomas Mars), and features Rashida Jones and Kirsten Dunst, backed by the new slice from Phoenix.
We recently heard a short snippet of the very same song in a mysterious clip from the band posted to their Twitter feed. The ad features more of the tune: a smooth, blanketed intro that ascends to a celestial peak with arpeggiated synths. It’s definitely Phoenix too, all warm and creamy. And Mars’ voice is unmistakable.
Check it out below. This whole thing is pretty magical.
