Stream The Avalanches’ new album ‘Wildflower’ one week early via Apple Music

Record will be officially released on July 8

The Avalanches‘ long-awaited new album is streaming online now.

The record will be officially released on July 8 via Astralwerks but you can hear it one week early via Apple Music below. It is currently only available in the US.

‘Wildflower’ is The Avalanches’ first album since their 2000 debut ‘Since I Left You’. It features collaborations with Danny Brown, Toro Y Moi, Father John Misty, Bad Seeds member Warren Ellis, plus more.

Explaining the long wait, Robbie Chater has said: “What kept us going during the making the record was a belief in the day-to-day experience of music as a life force – an energy capable of changing your life. Hearing a certain song on a certain morning can change your day; it can make the world look different. It can change the way you perceive light refracting through the atmosphere for the rest of the afternoon. Literally changing the colour and feeling-tone of your world.”

Previous songs released from the album include ‘Subways’, ‘Colours’, ‘If I Was A Folkstar’ and lead single ‘Frankie Sinatra’.
