After a huge 2016 releasing their second album ‘Wildflower’, The Avalanches have raised brows today in revealing yet another album is in the works on the way.
The Melbourne group were interviewed this morning on FBi Radio promoting their upcoming block party for Vivid LIVE, where they were quizzed on forthcoming music and had this to say:
“In the few weeks since we’ve been home from the States, me and Tony have just been writing. It’s flowing so quickly. I think getting Wildflower out of the way and following up Since I Left You feels like a weight’s been lifted. The [new] music is really light, it’s some of the best stuff we’ve done.”
So for those die-hard Avalanches fans, fear not! We will NOT be waiting another 16 years for a record, in fact we may even see a new music in 2017. When speaking on a potential release they said:
“We’ve got eight songs we’re playing to the label on Monday. Who knows when [they’ll be out]? Next year? It’s definitely soon.”
No further deets have been announced but all will be revealed in good time. For now, listen back to their FBi interview right here and revisit ‘Subways’ below.
