The Avalanches have shared the latest preview from their upcoming album We Will Always Love You. It’s called ‘Interstellar Love’ and it features Leon Bridges. The track was inspired by the love affair between Ann Druyan and Carl Sagan and samples the Alan Parsons Project’s ‘Eye in the Sky’. Check it out below.
“Leon is an incredible singer, with just the most beautiful voice,” the Avalanches’ Robbie Chater said in a statement. “He’s from Texas but we both happened to be in L.A. at the same time, which was lucky as he was on my all-time wish list. When we were in the studio, I told him the story about Ann Druyan and Carl Sagan and how her lovestruck brain waves were sent out into space on the Voyager’s Golden Record. And this song came out of that.”
We Will Always Love You, the follow-up to 2016’s Wildflower, comes out December 11 via Astralwerks. Throughout 2020, the group have shared a series of singles, including ‘Running Red Lights’ with Rivers Cuomo and Pink Siifu, ‘We Will Always Love You’ with Blood Orange, and ‘Wherever You Go’ with Jamie xx, Neneh Cherry, and CLYPSO, and ‘Take Care in Your Dreaming’ featuring Denzel Curry, Tricky, and Sampa the Great.
