Start spreading the news! This is not a drill! Finally! About freaking time (etc etc)…
It’s true… after a massive wait for sophomore material from highly celebrated Australian outfit The Avalanches, their brand new single has arrived.
It’s called ‘Frankie Sinatra’. It was serviced to Australian media mere moments ago. And it’s the lead single from their forthcoming new album; a new album that’s been an extraordinary 16 years in the making.
The band burst onto the scene in 2000 with their critically-acclaimed debut album (and prophetically-titled, it would seem) ‘Since I Left You’, but the wait for new music has been long… and, at some stages, a little painful.
But the new single is finally here. And it’s to be accompanied by the band’s long-awaited sophomore album, entitled ‘Wildflower’, on Friday July 08.
“What kept us going during the making this record was a belief in the day-to-day experience of music as a life force – as life energy,” bandmember Robbie Charter said in a statement. “Hearing a certain song on a certain morning can change your day; it can make the world look different, changing the way you perceive light refracting through the atmosphere for the rest of the afternoon. Literally changing the colour, feeling and tone of your world.”
‘Frankie Sinatra’ is out now, with the album (out July 08), available for pre-order!
