Both Burgess and The Avalanches have new albums on the way. Burgess’ new solo album ‘I Love The New Sky’ – which features the single ‘The Mall’ – is due out May 22.
Though no details have been confirmed for The Avalanches’ new album, which will be the follow-up to their 2016 record ‘Wallflower’, the group have released two new songs this year: ‘We Will Always Love You’ featuring Blood Orange and ‘Running Red Lights’ with Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo and Pink Siifu.
In a statement accompanying ‘We Will Always Love You’, The Avalanches said, “Our new record is about such journeys, from darkness to light. About life after (all kinds of) death. About the transcendent nature of music itself.”
