Rapper Danny Brown has spoken about his collaboration with The Avalanches, saying "It'll change the world".

Speaking to radio station Triple J at the Splendor In The Grass festival in Australia, Brown revealed that he had made two tracks with the band.

"I did one song with them a while ago and it was cool," commented Brown. "They felt like it was OK and I felt like it was OK. But then we actually got in the studio and made a record and I swear the record we made is incredible. 'Frank Sinatra' was the first one we did. That was cool but the one we did after that... I swear, if we put that out, it'll change the world. I heard it that first night and that was the only time I heard it. I wanna hear it again!"

In the interview, he also expressed a desire to work with Alt-J . "I don't wanna do anything predictable," he said. "I just listen to everything. I wanna do something with Alt-J."

In 2008 it was reported that The Avalanches had finished work on their follow-up to 'Since I Left You', with the band updating their MySpace page to tell fans: "New material soon." However, despite both Ariel Pink and Danny Brown claiming they have worked on songs for the new album, nothing has been released yet, aside from a contribution to a new musical version of King Kong. The Australian act, who have released a very limited amount of material following the success of their 2001 album 'Since I Left You', contributed a cover of the song 'Get Happy', made famous by Judy Garland.
