The Avalanches Post New Single We Will Always Love You Featuring Blood Orange

Thursday, 20 February 2020 Written by Jon Stickler

The Avalanches have shared a collaboration with Blood Orange.

Following a series of teasers, We Will Always Love You arrives complete with soulful vocals from Dev Hynes and samples Smokey Robinson and the Roches. The two-minute ethereal track marks the Australian electronic pioneers' first new release since their 2018 remix EP 'Because I'm Me'. They wrote in a statement:

"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.

"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. Tonight Smokey Robinson duets with Dev Hynes and the Roches. Those spirits are out there. We are each a tune, floating in space. And this one’s for you."

The Avalanches released their latest album, 'Wildflower', in 2016, marking their first full-length in 16 years. They return to Europe for several festival appearances this summer, including London's All Points East on May 23.
