Thomas Mars Talks About 'Ti Amo'

Last year, Phoenix released its compilation, Ti Amo. Prior to the album's release, Phoenix lead singer Thomas Mars opened up about their sixth studio album and said that they recorded all of the 10 songs in the album in Paris.

"The place where we recorded this was album was in an area of Paris which had previously been under attack by terrorists. Before that all happened it was a pretty busy place. We took over an old opera house near the Centre Pompidou, in the heart of Paris, that had been refashioned into a tech incubator, museum and concert hall, so we were used to being surrounded by people," said Mars.

Mars also said that Ti Amo is just like their previous albums because they see to it that they incorporate new sounds.

"We start from scratch every time. We try to change everything up, from album to album. We almost get bored of who we were on each record and it's the same way with the vocals. I almost try and create an alter ego of myself each time," explained Mars.
