Coachella 2013 headliners Phoenix debuted the first single on their forthcoming LP "Bankrupt!" on Monday. 

The song is called "Entertainment," and it nicely encapsulates what the French band does best -- glittery guitar-driven electro pop with somewhat nonsensical lyrics ("When everyone here knows better / What I once refused to be / Is everything they long together").

Bankrupt! debuts April 23, the band's first album since 2009's breakthrough Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, winner of the Grammy for alternative music album.

The band will launch a world tour in Vancouver in March, then land at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio for main stage gigs on April 13 and April 20.
