The highly anticipated third album from The Avalanches. A cosmic love story with explosive production and some expertly curated guest appearances
Building on the sample-based approach of their classic albums Since I Left You and Wildflower, but stepping boldly into new terrain, We Will Always Love You is the new full length masterpiece from The Avalanches. Features Ann Druyan (Director of the Voyager Golden Record Project) on the album cover, her cosmic love story with Carl Sagan inspiring this body of work.
The Avalanches have been taste teasing their fans with samples of what to expect from the their forthcoming album with recent track releases We Will Always Love You (feat. Blood Orange), Running Red Lights (feat. Rivers Cuomo & Pink Siifu), Wherever You Go (feat. Jamiexx, Neneh Cherry & CLYPSO), Reflecting Light (feat. Sananda Maitreya & Vashti Bunyan), Take Care In Your Dreaming (feat. Denzel Curry, Tricky and Sampa the Great) and Music Makes Me High.
Take Care In Your Dreaming featuring alt-rapper Denzel Curry, Tricky and Melbourne based Zambian rapper-singer Sampa The Great is a song about unrealised dreams and navigating unexpected journeys through life. “The song is a ‘careful what you wish for’ kind of thing.”
Music Makes Me High is truly an up tempo number, this disco-funk tune has a golden glow that simultaneously casts back to tunes like The Whispers’s “And The Beat Goes On” and to the filter-house echoes of that era such as Stardust “Music Feels Better With You” and Gusto’s “Disco’s Revenge”. “There’s a gospel choir on there, but very softly in the mix, singing over the ‘music makes me high’ sample.”
Sparkling with the treble frequencies that made Since I Left You such a dizzy thrill, We Will Always Love You is dedicated to probing “the vibrational relationship between light, sound and spirit.” But the goal now is elevation rather than intoxication.
