It has been 16 years since The Avalanches released a new song, but, finally, the wait is over. The new track "Frankie Sinatra" features a mixture of Danny Brown, MF Doom, and a piece from The Sound of Music. The now duo of, Tony Di Blasi and Robbie Chater, have also revealed that the band will be releasing their new album, Wildflower, on July 8th.
"Frankie Sinatra" was premiered on Triple J in Australia earlier today. The Avalanches said the track was, "the hardest to finish – a sample-heavy song that took two years to mix, with over 100 reference mixes," reported The Guardian. The track is accompanied by a Fleur & Manu-directed music video that is all the kind of weird we've been waiting for, check it out below.
Speaking with Zane Lowe of Beats 1 Radio, the band "revealed there were many moments over the past years where the band, like their fans, thought the album would never happen," adds The Guardian. However, Wildflower is coming out, and we can all rest easy. The Avalanches added on their interview with Zane Lowe that their will be 21 tracks or "segments" on the record, andFather John Misty, Toro Y Moi, Jennifer Herrema of Royal Trux, Camp Lo, Biz Markie, Mercury Rev's Jonathan Donahue, and Warren Ellis of the Bad Seeds would all be making appearances.
The Avalanches are set to play their first live show in 15 years tomorrow at Barcelona, Spain's Primavera Sound. They will follow that gig up with three more shows, two in London, England, and one at Australia's Splendor in the Grass.
