Australian electronic duo The Avalanches' new album, We Will Always Love You is the much-anticipated follow-up to 2016's Wildflower. Described as "an exploration of the vibrational relationship between light, sound and spirit," it doubles as an examination of the human voice and a spiritual reckoning via the big questions: Who are we really? What happens when we die? The Avalanches – Robbie Chater and Tony DiBlasi alongside collaborator Andrew Szekeres – have moved beyond the party-up exuberance of their youthful music to a tender, reflective sound infused with hard-earned life wisdom. Building on the sample-based approach of their classic albums Since I Left You and Wildflower, but stepping boldly into new terrain, We Will Always Love You is their most song-oriented album yet, made with an array of guest singers and writers.
