Australian outfit finally announce their second album.
Sixteen years since they left us with their cult sample-heavy debut Since I Left You, The Avalanches have announced the release of Wildflower, the 22-track follow up featuring Danny Brown, MF DOOM, Father John Misty, Toro Y Moi, Jennifer Herrema, Biz Markie and more.
Debuted on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show, the album’s first single ‘Frankie Sinatra’ will be pressed to 7″ vinyl with an exclusive track on the flip by Astralwerks and released on June 14th through a selection of independent record shops.
With artwork inspired by Sly and the Family Stone’s There’s A Riot Goin’ On, the album will also receive various vinyl editions.
XL will take care of the deluxe double black vinyl edition, which comes housed in an 8-panel gatefold with pull out poster, while Vinyl Me, Please will carry a limited red vinyl edition that’s available to pre-order from June 16th.
Newbury Comics will also offer another vinyl edition, this time with modified artwork, limited to 1000 copies. Check it out below.
