Published Feb 20, 2020The Avalanches have returned with a new song featuring Blood Orange called "We Will Always Love You."
The Australian band hinted at the song title with a mysterious billboard in Melbourne earlier this month, and now it has arrived on streaming services.
The track features original compositions by Blood Orange's Dev Hynes, as well as samples of Smokey Robinson and the Roches.
The Avalanches also confirmed that a new full-length album is indeed on the way. In a statement, they explained:
Sometimes we receive a message. Telling us our music has been there; through dark times, loneliness, loss.
There are no words to express how moving or profound this connection with you is.
Because the music was born out of such moments itself, and so it is felt, by those with open hearts, on the same wavelength it was first created.
Morse Code beamed and received by hearts and hearts alike.
Our new record is about such journeys, from darkness to light. About life after (all kinds of) death. About the transcendent nature of music itself.
Every voice ever played on the radio over the last 100 years now exists in the stars; the transmissions of these singers are forever floating around out there, lost in the cosmos, endless travelling.
While we await further details about the follow-up to 2016's Wildflower, listen to "We Will Always Love You" below.
