The Avalanches Team Up With Jamie XX, Neneh Cherry, Vashti Bunyan, and More on Latest Singles
The plunderphonics group share “Wherever You Go” and “Reflecting Light” ahead of their third LP.
Back in 2016, The Avalanches finally followed up their groundbreaking 2000 debut with their second LP, Wildflower. Fortunately, we won’t have to wait another sixteen years for their third record, as it’s slated to be released later this year. The group shared the Blood Orange–featuring title track at the beginning of the year, with “Running Red Lights,” featuring the unlikely pair of Rivers Cuomo and Pink Siifu, shortly after. Now we’re getting two more singles: “Wherever You Go,” which features Jamie XX, Neneh Cherry, and CLYPSO, and “Reflecting Light,” with Sananda Maitreya and Vashti Bunyan.
Check out the visualizers for both tracks—the former a smooth, trancy cut with XX’s influence made well-known in the production, the latter more soulful—below, along with statements the band released with the singles. WWALY has yet to receive a release date.
