The elusive outfit have revealed details of their forthcoming third LP.

The Avalanches have announced the highly-anticipated follow up to 2016’s Wildflower, revealing the title and cover art for their forthcoming LP, We Will Always Love You. 

The announcement follows a sprinkling of singles across the past few months, including the record’s title track ‘We Will Always Love You’ featuring Blood Orange, ‘Running Red Lights’ featuring Rivers Cuomo and Pink Siifu and, most recently, ‘Wherever You Go’ with Jamie xx, Neneh Cherry and CLYPSO.

While The Avalanches did not reveal the official release date for the album, they did confirm that it will be available for pre-order next week, with more details to follow soon.

The outfit did, however, expand on the album cover. The artwork by Jonathan Zawada features Creative Director of the Voyager Golden Record Project, Ann Druyan, “who’s [sic] cosmic love story inspired this music,” they wrote on Instagram.

“In keeping with the album’s theme of everlasting love as an undying vibration, Ann’s image was run through a spectograph [sic], turned into sound, and back again. The image remains hidden, deep within in [sic] the grooves of the music, for you to discover if you wish,” they added.

“An exploration of the vibrational relationship between light, sound and spirit.”
