Four years after their second full-length Wildflowers and 2020’s “We Will Always Love You” (with Blood Orange), Australian Melbourne based band The Avalanches have announced the release of a new album. We Will Always Love You will be out on December 11th via Astralwerks. Check the new tracks called “Music Makes Me High” which features Denzel Curry, Tricky, and Sampa The Great.
The Avalanches‘ acclaimed debut album Since I Left You is composed almost entirely of samples from other records — but there’s nothing lazy or unimaginative about their approach to recording…
Few records managed to capture the dizzy rush of the cut-and-paste aesthetic as succinctly as The Avalanches‘ Since I Left You. With its immaculately sewn patchwork of found sounds and gussied-up rhythms, the Australian duo’s charming debut seduced almost anyone who came near it.
Entitled ‘Running Red Lights’, The Avalanches new track features Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo, LA-based artist and Pink Siifu. Last month, the electronic group also shared a new track with Blood Orange, AKA Dev Hynes, ‘We Will Always Love You’. It was the first new music since 2017, when The Avalanches revealed that they had begun work on a new album following the release of 2016’s ‘Wildflower’. That album is expected to drop later this year.

The Avalanches are wasting no time pumping out new material now that they’ve finally completed their endlessly awaited second album Wildflower. Today, you can add the hypnotically smooth ‘Subways’ to the list.
Though there are no guest appearances on the track, the vocals come right from Chandra’s 1980 funk-punk track of the same name. While the original song is a bit of an abrasive, cheeky number, layering the lyrics over a sample of Graham Bonnet’s cover of The Bee Gees’ “Warm Ride” turns them into a summery dream. The track feels more suited for a ride on an over-street transit at sunset than the subterranean transportation of its name, which is just perfect as we finally roll into a new season.The track follows previous singles ‘Frankie Sinatra’, ‘If I Was A Folk Star’ and our favorite of the batch, ‘Colours’.
