PARIS, May 13 — French synth-pop band Phoenix have dropped a video for their new song J-Boy, taken from the upcoming album Ti Amo.

After outing a first video featuring the audio for the J-Boy single and the upcoming release’s artwork as its only image, Phoenix has now dropped the single’s full music video.

The video features the If I Ever Feel Better and Lisztomania singers playing a live TV performance on a mock Italian TV show straight out of the 1980s. Two presenters introduce the band, telling viewers that they hail from the French city of Versailles and citing inspirations such as Serge Gainsbourg, The Velvet Underground and The Beatles.

Phoenix is one of several prominent French electro groups to break through internationally, alongside Daft Punk, Cassius and Air.

Released June 9, Ti Amo, will be the band’s sixth album. It is already available to preorder on the band’s website
