Danny Brown on collaboration with The Avalanches: ‘It’ll change the world’

The rapper has recorded two songs with the elusive Australian group

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.
