‘We Will Always Love You’ hosts a colossal list of collaborators outside of Marr and MGMT. Denzel Curry, Rivers Cuomo, Sampa The Great, Jamie xx, Neneh Cherry, Karen O, Blood Orange and more all appear on the 25-track album.

To mark the release of the album, the Australian duo have announced a virtual live show to take place on Saturday December 19, taking place across three different timezones to accommodate for fans around the world.

In a cover interview with NME, the duo explained how they feel now they’re beginning to release music more regularly.

“Now we’re just a regular band instead of the band who made an amazing debut everyone’s talking about,” Robbie Chater said.
