The French band's latest album will be released on April 22.

They have been working on the record since 2011, and it was reportedly recorded on the same console as Michael Jackson's Thriller.

Guitarist Laurent Brancowitz purchased the Harrison 4032 console on eBay for $17,000 (£10,826).

Singer Thomas Mars said they bought the console as they "liked the idea of working with a consecrated artefact, as well as having something strange upon which to fixate between albums".

He explained: "The most mysterious part to me was that no-one else - no nerd or music engineer or memorabilia freak - seemed to want it."

Phoenix will headline this year's Coachella Valley Festival of Music and Arts in California.

The tracklisting to Bankrupt is as follows:

'Entertainment'
'The Real Thing'
'SOS In Bel Air'
'Trying To Be Cool'
'Bankrupt!'
'Drakkar Noir'
'Chlorophorm'
'Don't'
'Bourgeois'
'Oblique City'
